Database of UK cell therapy research funding opportunities launched

November 20, 2014

The database, which is launched today, has identified over 100 sources of funding from 34 organisations, totalling over £3bn for which cell therapies are believed to be eligible; of this around £100m is earmarked specifically for the sector. Fully searchable, it is designed to help researchers identify quickly and accurately appropriate sources of funding for their work, as well as provide an up-to-date snapshot of the UK environment.

Data was collected in the first half of 2014 from the research councils, medical research charities, other UK Government-funded organisations (such as the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK and the National Institute for Health Research) and EU bodies. With each funding scheme categorised by research stage, eligibility criteria, therapeutic area and closing date, the database lists schemes open for submission as of July 2014 and will be updated regularly. Grants in the database cover a broad size range, with the smallest at £5,000 and the largest a €20m Horizon 2020 call, with the majority not exceeding £1m.
