Kidney Research UK - Stoneygate Research Awards
We are the largest charity dedicated to kidney research in the UK. Along with many medical research charities, our ability to fund new research last year was severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. We have been delighted to be able to restart our grants programmes this year.
With thanks to our continued partnership with the Stoneygate Trust, we are now able to fund the next round of our dedicated research programme.
In line with our shared strategic interest in improving the lives of people with kidney disease, we are pleased to invite expressions of interest for research proposals that match the theme of transforming treatments.
Transforming treatments is a key research priority for Kidney Research UK and the Stoneygate Trust - we are committed to finding new ways to:
- make dialysis more tolerable and effective
- extend the life of a transplant and make it easier to live with
- make monitoring less invasive and kinder, and less dependent on hospital visits
- develop and expand the use of medical technology to achieve earlier diagnosis and better patient management .
We are now inviting expressions of interest from teams or individuals whose proposals offer the potential to address these specific issues. We particularly welcome research that will also reduce the inequalities that arise in these areas.
We will only consider one application type per applicant, even if you have several research ideas.
