If funding for a trial is required, it is important to consider that the process of applying and securing funding may take some time. This time should be factored into planning and related activities.

Once the Clinical Division has deemed the study feasible, the CI/PI can continue with and complete the funding application. This will involve liaising with the relevant contacts in the Joint Research Office, who will review the application and/or negotiate any associated contract/agreements.
