UK DCTN Funding Awards
Annual Themed Research Call - Research development fund of £10,000
We run an open competition each year, on a different skin topic to assist research teams in developing their research idea. This award is principally designed to fund feasibility or pilot work that will eventually lead to a randomised controlled clinical trial, or inform the design of such a study.

The 2020 award is encouraging research proposals on psychodermatology. If you have a research project/idea linked to psychological treatments for skin disease and need funding to kick start your idea then please apply.
Application deadline: Wednesday 22 July 2020.
Please note: Applicants must be available to present their idea (if shortlisted) in London on Tuesday 13 October 2020
Topic for 2021 - Paediatric Dermatology
The deadline for the 2021 award will be announced in November 2020. For further enquiries please contact us by email
