To better understand the nature of the risk posed by the Zika virus, the Medical Research Council (MRC) is launching a £1m rapid response funding initiative.
The Medical Research Council (MRC), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) are pleased to invite proposals to the UK-China AMR Partnership Initiative.
This initiative will provide funding for high quality collaborative research projects focussed on addressing the growing global burden of antimicrobial resistance, specifically antibacterial resistance of clinical and veterinary relevance in China.
In total up to £4.5m will be made available for this initiative on the UK side with up to 3million RMB per project from NSFC.
The EU Joint Programme - Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND) has launched a rapid action call for leading scientists in the field to establish working groups to bring forward novel approaches to enhance the use of brain imaging for neurodegenerative disease research. Full details are available on the JPND website.
Supports translation of fundamental discoveries toward benefits to human health. Funds pre-clinical development and early clinical testing of novel regenerative medicine therapies.
