GOSH Children’s Charity-Sparks Joint Call: Inviting Applicants for Child Health Research across UK

Deadline: 26 July 2017

Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) Children’s Charity has partnered with Sparks, the children’s medical research charity to support paediatric research nationally. Through this partnership they aim to drive more funds and awareness into paediatric health research across the UK.

GOSH Charity and Sparks are inviting project grant applications for child health research from researchers across the UK. The emphasis of this call is on complex childhood illness, including rare diseases.

This call will support translational research across the spectrum of medical conditions affecting the fetus, neonates and children directly, as well as pregnancy disorders that affect the child.

All projects must aim to improve understanding and/or outcomes of the child and have the potential to lead to the development of new diagnostic tools and novel interventions. They encourage proposals with a clear route to clinical application and that demonstrate a strong partnership between clinical and laboratory based research.

Funding Information

Under this funding call, applications will be considered from researchers across the UK. Up to £2 million is available to spend under this call and it is anticipated that they will fund a range of proposals from different investigators and institutions. Funding will be provided for the direct costs of research (such as research staff and consumables) but will not cover consultant PAs or team-leader salary time. Typically, projects will last up to 3 years.

Eligibility Criteria

  • This is a national funding call and is open to researchers across the UK.
  • Applicants do not need to have a co-applicant or collaborator from Great Ormond Street Hospital or the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health.
