Funding Sources

The Trust encourages researchers to apply for research grants via the UK Clinical Research Network. The calls for proposals are updated frequently so it is advisable to check regularly for new funding streams.


The NIHR’s Portfolio database has been replaced by a new Central Portfolio Management System (CPMS) and the public access search for clinical trials is now provided from the UK Clinical Trials Gateway (UKCTG) website. Please follow the link to the UKCTG website to find out more about clinical trials.
