The MRC have announced a joint call with the Medical Research Foundation (MRC's independently managed charity) for proposals to study 'Intellectual disabilities: Risk factors affecting the trajectory of development and their impact on mental health outcomes and behaviour'.

One research project with an award value of up to £3m will be funded, thus this call will be coordinated according to the University's Procedure for Restricted Calls: http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/research/documents/local/raven/procedures/12032012_restricted_calls.pdf
