Published on


Action and Cystic Fibrosis Trust logo

Action Medical Research and Cystic Fibrosis Trust are teaming up to fund a project grant in 2024 for translational research into Cystic Fibrosis in children.

Applications will be judged in open competition on both potential clinical impact and scientific quality. Applications for jointly funded applications must meet the remit of both charities.

Applications may be made for project grants of up to £200,000 and up to three years duration. Up to £200,000 of joint funding is available to spend on co-funded projects as part of this call. Principal Investigators must be based at UK institutions and awards can only be made to UK institutions. Researchers outside the UK can collaborate on UK based projects if appropriate.

Action Medical Research will continue to consider applications across the breadth of its remit. Applications for project grants that are not eligible for co-funding but meet the remit of Action Medical Research alone will also be considered. Applications that address the research priorities of the CF community are particularly encouraged by Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

For more information on Action’s remit and the project grant call see how to Apply For A Research Grant.
