Rosetrees Trust Seedcorn

Awards are aimed at enabling researchers to advance innovative and novel ideas related to prevention, diagnosis and/or treatment of human diseases.

About the fund

Applicants are expected to have a  novel hypothesis and some preliminary data that can be developed over 12-18 months to form the  basis of larger grant applications. Junior researchers are advised to apply under the supervision of established Principal Investigators.

Applicants with ‘out-of-the-box’, potentially transformative ideas are encouraged to apply and we welcome applications from engineering and physical scientists with ideas that can be applied to clinical research. At the end of the funding period, continuation funding may be available for successful projects.

Up to £15K, twice-yearly deadlines (Oct and April)
