Applications open for methodology research pump priming grants
14 January 2020
The Global Health Network and the NIHR-MRC Trials Methodology Research Partnership (TMRP) are delighted to announce that applications are open for pump-priming grants of between £2000 and £10000 specifically for methods research relevant to low and middle-income countries.
About NIHR-MRC Trials Methodology Research Partnership (TMRP):
The way clinical trials are designed, conducted, analysed, reported and interpreted should continually be questioned so that they are optimal and responsive for a broad range of stakeholders. As such, the past decade has seen the new field of clinical trials methodology research – research about the way we design, conduct, analyse, report and interpret trials. In this context, the MRC/NIHR Trials Methodology Research Partnership (TMRP) initiated in June 2019 to increase capacity for trials methodology research. This partnership included the following working groups; Stratified Medicine, Health Informatics, Adaptive Designs, Outcomes, Trial Conduct, Health Economics, Statistical Analysis, and Global Health.
The Global Health Working Group aims to ensure that the voice of those working in clinical trials in low and middle-income countries is heard, as it cannot be assumed that the same methods will be important, relevant or acceptable in every context; clinical trials methodology researchers in low resourced settings may both benefit from, and contribute to, ongoing developments in clinical trial methodology research globally.
The deadline for submissions is midnight (GMT) 1 March 2020.
