Medical Research Scotland COVID-19 Research Grant

Medical Research Scotland COVID-19 Research Grant

In response to the current coronavirus emergency, Medical Research Scotland (MRS) is making funds available for research into any aspect of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Projects must have a clear route toward an impact in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic including, but not restricted to:

Development of approaches to diagnosis, testing and treatment.

Creation of resources for medical use in hospitals, care homes or by the public.

Social science studies that will be useful for professional practice, standards or policy.

If creating a new device, there must be scope to meet regulatory standards.

Grants can be used for new research projects, for pilot studies, or to supplement existing research programmes, whether funded by other grants or not. What is important to MRS is offering the most useful support for work designed to understand and combat COVID-19.

Eligible to apply are universities and research institutes in Scotland. Collaborations with external partners are welcomed.

Grants are not expected to exceed £20,000. Direct costs and consumables will be supported (not salaries).

There is no closing date. Applications will be reviewed as they arrive. Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application as quickly as possible.
