Action for A-T have joined forces with Action Medical Research to co-fund A-T research in 2018.  Action for A-T and Action Medical Research are now calling for project grant outline applications from across the UK for a closing date of Tuesday 21 November 2017.

Guidance for Applicants:
Action for A-T and Action Medical Research invite outline applications for UK based research projects into Ataxia-Telangiectasia (A-T). We will consider high quality medical research projects that have the potential to lead to treatments and cures for the condition. Applications are invited across the fields of this multi-system condition, however research must demonstrate to be of actual or future potential benefit to A-T patients.

All outline applications will be judged in open competition on both potential clinical impact and scientific quality.  Applications for jointly funded applications must meet the remit of both charities.

Applications are welcome for project grants of up to three years in duration for a maximum award of £200,000 (to cover a research post, consumables, and essential equipment).

Principal investigators and applicants must be based at UK institutions and awards can only be made to UK institutions. Researchers outside the UK can collaborate on UK based projects.

Review process
Applications should be made to Action Medical Research who will be managing the process though their normal grant round application forms and timelines. You can access a link to the outline application form here.  Successful applicants from the outline stage will then be invited to complete a full application for full external peer review in open competition with other applications in the grant round.

Questions regarding this grant round should be directed to Action Medical Research through their email address:
