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.

Topic for 2021 - Paediatric Dermatology

We are inviting research proposals on paediatric dermatology this year.  If you have a research project/idea linked to treatments for skin disease in children then please apply. We have co-funding from BOTH the British Society for Paediatric Dermatology (BSPD) and the National Eczema Society (NES).  This means there will be 3 x 10K awards available.  Two awards available for all aspects of paediatric dermatology (including paediatric eczema) and one award available just for paediatric eczema.

Application deadline: Monday 19 July 2021.

Please note: UK Applicants only, and you must be available to present your idea, if shortlisted, on 5th October 2021.
Topic for 2022 - Genital Dermatoses

For our 2022 award the topic will be genital dermatoses in collaboration with the British Society for the Study of Vulval Disease.  We will have two awards of £10,000 available - 1 - Any genital skin disease, 2 - female only genital disease. Contact us now if you have any general enquiries about this funding call.
