Announcement from Professor Frank Gunn-Moore, University of St Andrews, Lead of Fundamental Science Theme

The SDRC are delighted to announce a new funding opportunity.  The Scottish Neurological Research Fund has been established to research the causes, prevention and management of neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental conditions. 

The funders, Chief Scientist Office and the RS Macdonald Charitable Trust, have committed £150,000 for the first year’s pilot.  The University of St Andrews is leading the initiative, with support from the Scottish Dementia Research Consortium.  I am supporting this initiative, as I see the value of working collaboratively across centres to promote new ideas in this important field.

The first round of funding is now open and our deadline is 20th May 2019. 

Please promote the funding opportunity as you see fit, and to help ensure our initiative achieves a high level of good quality applications for our panel to consider.
