Peer review – how your application will be judged:

All applications are assessed by peer review. Firstly, by independent external referees with expertise in the field of A-T and/or with expertise in the research area proposed, and then by Action for A-T’s Research Advisory Committee.  The Research Advisory Committee recommends the grants most likely to deliver and we pride ourselves that our research is of a high standard as judged by a robust peer review process.

Action for A-T will manage this grant round on behalf of both charities.  Action for A-T is a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) and has been awarded a best practice certificate for peer review and research management.
