Grant applications sought
The Dr Hadwen Trust is inviting grant applications from UK-based researchers for research which will advance scientific and medical knowledge and replace the use of laboratory animals in medical research.
Grants are not available simply in support of non-animal research per se. The research must be directed towards replacing the use of living animals in current procedures within the applicant’s laboratory or, preferably, in the wider field.
Proposals relevant to any area of medical research or testing can be considered and applications that integrate a range of disciplines are welcomed. Applicants are encouraged to outline the potential benefits of the proposed work in both scientific and replacement terms. It is important to provide measures of impact, for example, an estimate of the number of animals replaced or what scientific advantages it could have over other in vivo/vitro methods. Assessment will take account of the applicants' strategy for promoting the proposed research to their scientific peers, for example through publications and presentations at scientific conferences.
1 year - 3 years
A grant may be awarded for any period of up to 3 years. The financial support requested should be tailored to the scientific needs of the proposal. Requests for funding can include:
- The salary of the position applied for
- Other costs (if applicable)
Up to 45K / year + consumables
The deadline for submitting a preliminary application for the 2011 round of grants is Monday 28 February 2011.
Research which requires or involves the use of living animals in any way, even though the ultimate aim may be to replace their use, will not be supported. We will not fund the purchase or maintenance of animals for any reason. The Dr Hadwen Trust does NOT award Full Economic Costs (FEC).
