UK DCTN Funding Awards
Annual Themed Research Call - Research development fund - £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 2018 - Supporting Dermatology Priority Setting Partnerships
The 2018 award is encouraging research ideas that have been prioritised by a recently completed priority setting partnership (top ten research questions are listed on the James Lind Alliance website). This mainly includes cellulitis and lichen sclerosus. If you have a relevant research suggestion and need funding to kick start your idea then please apply now.
