CLDF currently have a research grant round open for £10,000 awards, the deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 25th June
Children’s Liver Disease Foundation (CLDF) are funding research grants with an overall aim of encouraging research in liver disease in children and young people. We aim to support preliminary research that will contribute significantly to a subsequent larger research grant proposal. Aside from the need to address liver disease in children, there are no restrictions on the scope of projects, which may focus on gaining insights into the causes of liver disease or improving diagnosis, management and longer-term outcomes. Awards can include basic, translational, laboratory, clinical or a social science focus. They can be used to pump prime a new project or support an ongoing project. Projects may be stand-alone or linked to one or more existing studies.
For more information on the grant round please see the following link https://childliverdisease.org/research/10000-grant-round/
