UK DCTN Funding AwardsChq_presentation

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 2019 - Dermatological Surgery £20K joint award

The 2019 award is encouraging research proposals on dermatological surgery.  It is co-funded by the British Society for Dermatological Surgery (BSDS) and consequently up to £20,000 could be made available.  If you have a research project/idea on non-cosmetic surgery and need funding to kick start your idea then please apply.

Download the information sheet for the 2019 award here

Please note: Applicants must be available to present their idea (if shortlisted) in London on Tuesday 1 October 2019
