Launchpad Grants in Mental Health
The Medical Research Foundation’s Launchpad Grants will support early and mid-career researchers and clinical academics, whose research will increase understanding of mental health, and improve diagnosis, treatment and recovery. The funding should be used to develop multidisciplinary partnerships with researchers in other fields, acting as a launchpad for larger funding opportunities and further research.
Applications within a broad field of mental health research are welcomed. However, we particularly encourage applications from areas that have been identified as in need of funding, including ADHD, Tourette’s, suicide and self-harm, and trauma-related mental health.
The grants can be used to conduct pilot studies, generate data and collaborations, and develop competitive research proposals for larger funding.
Applicants may apply for up to £100,000 to support their research, over a maximum of a 2-year period (pro-rata for part-time positions).
