Pushing frontiers in health research: Call for applications

Published on 29 November 2017

Applications are now open for our pushing frontiers in health research call with a deadline of 16:00 on Wednesday 7 February 2018.

We're challenging the research community to help us push new boundaries of translational and health research, and are inviting applications for research proposals that will be directly relevant to people with arthritis and whose outputs aim to lead to a positive change to relevant health services.

Through this call, we seek to fund ambitious and innovative research that will make significant strides towards better management of musculoskeletal diseases, building on and expanding previous work in the field, as well as inspiring new original research. Funded research resulting from the call will be expected to take a multidisciplinary approach to deliver these studies.

The deadline for outline applications will be Wednesday 7 February 2018, and the deadline for invited full applications will be Wednesday 13 June 2018.

For further details on how to apply, the application criteria, and associated documentation, please visit the call for applications.
