The Medical Research Council invites expressions of interest for its experimental medicine grants. These will be awarded primarily for the early testing of novel treatments or interventions in human participants with a realistic and clear strategy for the delivery of patient benefit in the short to medium term. Proposals submitted under this call should be hypothesis driven and where possible designed to capture information that demonstrates mechanism of effect and provide biological plausibility.

A total of £15m MRC funding is available to spend under this call and it is anticipated that approximately 20-30 proposals may be funded across a range of investigators and Institutions. It is expected that awards are for up to 3 years and would normally be in the range from £300k to £800k.
