Funding opportunity for cardiovascular research

Researchers within Greater Manchester can apply for £10,000 MAHSC funding to support Cardiovascular and Inflammation & Repair research.

The Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC), part of Health Innovation Manchester, is offering funding for research-led projects in Cardiovascular and Inflammation and Repair domains.

Those eligible can apply for the awards to fund projects focusing on the intersection of cardiovascular disease (in any target organ or vascular bed) and inflammation/repair while considering the specific health needs of the Greater Manchester area. The aim is to fund cross-discipline, multi-institution, research-led projects that have potential to generate clinical impact and patient benefit.

Projects may include developing new technologies or biomarkers to diagnose or treat conditions, projects to better understand inflammatory or immune mechanism or preventive approaches to improve patient health.

The awards can be used to fund staff salaries, project running costs, and equipment essential to the study/project. PI and team should be working in an established research institution or NHS in the Greater Manchester area and applications must have the approval of the applicant’s Clinical Director/or Head of Research Centre.

Funding is planned to become available from 1 February 2022 and projects must start by 1 April 2022 at the latest.

Information on how to apply is available here and the deadline is 30 December.
