Large grants

Medical research grants in Scotland

TENOVUS Tayside and North East invite applications for TENOVUS Scotland Research Grants.

Awards of up to £50,000 will be made:

  1. Preference is given to:
    • Pump priming studies, which are thought likely to lead to subsequent funding from major grant-giving bodies
    • Innovative patient-related projects
    • Early career investigators
    • Applications from investigators lacking other substantive support in the early stages of a new project
    • Recent recruits
    • New collaborations between established investigators
  2. Tenovus Scotland - Tayside does not fund:
    • Applications which are not properly certificated
    • Applications for work that will be conducted outside of the relevant region
    • Partial funding for projects supported by other grant funds
    • Applications that fail to provide evidence of appropriate ethical permission, or statistical justification for sample/cohort sizes (where appropriate)
    • Equipment for routine patient care or for assessment of new products, which the manufacturer might be expected to finance
  3. Furthermore, while there are no hard rules, Tenovus Scotland - Tayside does not usually fund:
    • Applications from established investigators for work within their usual field of expertise
    • Applications from students
    • Applications for follow-on work previously funded by Tenovus Scotland- Tayside, except in exceptional circumstances
  4. Additional points:
    • While Tenovus Scotland - Tayside will consider applications from postdoctoral researchers, these require clear support from their current supervisor as a co-applicant.
    • It is important that the principal investigator has tenure of contract for the duration of the award.  In occasional cases where this is not the case, the nominated co-applicant who will substitute as principal investigator must be clearly identified
    • The proposed start date and project duration should be clearly indicated on the application form
    • The Tenovus Scotland - Tayside Regional Reference Code for each project must be used on all correspondence including and in particular on all invoices submitted to Tenovus Scotland - Tayside for payment
    • Large Project Grants are primarily intended to support running costs, salaries and/or for research studentships. Requests to fund equipment for research will also be considered
    • All applications will be submitted to detailed peer review
    • We encourage researchers to publish their research in open-access journals.

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.
