Immunity, Infection and Inflammation Theme, NIHR Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre

Pump-Priming Grants 2013

The NIHR BRC Immunity, Infection and Inflammation Theme would like to award approximately 5 pump-priming grants, each between £10,000 and £40,000, to be used over 1 year from a start date of July 1st 2013 (at least 75% should be spent in 2013/2014).

These grants should focus on human and/or translational research within the broad remit of the Theme (, and applicants must be employed by either the University of Cambridge or an NHS Trust that one of the Cambridge University Health Partners ( Applications from younger investigators including postdoctoral fellows, clinical lecturers and career re-entry candidates are encouraged – but those who are not Principal Investigators should include a letter from their PI stating that appropriate space and other support for the project is in place. Applications that are cross-discipline in nature are also encouraged, in which case co-funding from another source might be an advantage. Success will be measured by the production of data which leads to external grant funding in a new area for the research group concerned, the award of a fellowship, or a similar quantifiable creation of new opportunities for translational science with the potential to impact on patient care.

Applications should comprise no more than two A4 pages of text describing the project, including details of how funds will be used, with an additional page for references and figures if desired.
The application should also provide details of up to 10 selected publications published within the last 10 years by the applicant, together with a brief description of how they plan to build on the grant if successful.

Enquiries and applications should be addressed to: Tennie Videler. The closing date is 5pm on Monday 24th June. Applications will be considered by a panel likely to include Ken Smith, John Todd, Sharon Peacock, David Jayne, Arthur Kaser and Paul Lehner – though panel membership might be modified to avoid conflict of interest once applications are received.
