Tenovus Scotland provides vital funds for early stage medical research in Scotland. One of Scotland’s leading medical research charities, it supports pilot projects and new research talent across Scotland and across the full range of medicine and healthcare. Such early stage research and the emerging generation of researchers have the potential to bring the key medical and healthcare breakthroughs of the future.

Since 1967, Tenovus Scotland has been making a key difference to Scottish medical research development through small and large medical research grants and scholarships. Our main focus is on funding projects to produce pilot evidence that then attracts longer term support from major external funders, leading to further research development.

Supporting Tenovus Scotland

We receive no government funding and our income is 100% from donations from individuals, charitable trusts and companies. All our funds are spent in the region (Edinburgh, Grampian, Strathclyde and Tayside) where they are raised, supporting research in academic institutions and clinical centres in that area.

By donating to Tenovus Scotland, you have the reassurance of dealing with a well-established charity with a robust scientific process identifying the best projects to fund – and with no restriction to any single disease area. Your donation will make a difference, funding early stage research projects and researchers to deliver future healthcare and medical benefits.

Medical research charity

I think it is highly insightful that Tenovus specifically supports fledgling clinical scientists to develop their ideas and generate the data required for future project grants, as it is particularly difficult to set up de novo research otherwise.
