The AICR will consider proposals in which a mixture of basic and clinical research is proposed. However, completely clinical applications, such as intervention studies, clinical trials or health care delivery research and many substantially clinical applications are beyond the remit of AICR. Before submitting applications of a clinical or semi-clinical nature, potential applicants are strongly encouraged to contact AICR for advice.
The Association is keen to support recently qualified researchers, work in areas that are relatively under funded or unexplored, pump-priming or preliminary research projects and projects involving international collaboration. Support is normally in the form of 3 year project grants or 1 year pilot studies.
