DPFS is an ongoing scheme, with outline deadlines every 4 months.
Further details of open and future DPFS deadlines can be found on the submission deadlines page for the scheme.
The DPFS scheme is a key part of our Translational Research Strategy and supports the translation of fundamental discoveries toward benefits to human health. It funds the pre-clinical development and early clinical testing of novel therapeutics, devices and diagnostics, including “repurposing” of existing therapies.
The call is now open for around 15 Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) focused on areas relevant to Artificial Intelligence (AI) across UKRI’s remit.
Research Councils UK (RCUK), the strategic partnership of the UK's seven Research Councils and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) are pleased to announce they will shortly be launching the UK-China Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Centre Partnerships Initiative under the umbrella of the Newton Fund.
The SCF supports talented medically and other clinically qualified professionals, with an effective track record of internationally competitive independent research, to make the transition to research leadership.
The overarching aim of this scheme is to provide resources to MRC-funded early career researchers working in the area of neurodegenerative disease to allow them to forge long-term collaborations with National Institutes of Health (NIH)-based researchers.
The CRTF supports clinically active professionals within the UK to undertake a higher research degree. The scheme can also provide post-doctoral funding for applicants who achieved their PhD more than five years ago but who have not been research active since due to clinical training commitments.
The CSF develops talented medically and other clinically qualified professionals who have gained a higher research degree to lead their own research plans and establish their own research team to make the transition to independent investigator.
MRC and BBSRC are pleased to announce support for UK participation in the JPI HDHL Joint Action on Nutrition and the Epigenome and encourage their research communities to apply for funding as part of transnational consortia.
The CDA supports talented post-doctoral researchers to lead their own research plans and establish their own research team to make the transition from post-doctoral researcher to independent investigator.
