The underpinning aetiology of self-harm and eating disorders
The Medical Research Foundation and MRC funding call application process is now closed. No further submissions will be accepted.
Following on from the 2016 Medical Research Foundation/MRC call in this area, a key aim of this funding call is to bring together experts from different research fields, and provide opportunities for researchers already working in associated areas or on other relevant related clinical research to extend the scope of their research interests and develop hypotheses exploring the underlying biology and psychology of these diverse mental health conditions.
The awards are intended to be flexible - giving scope to support the early career development of new PIs or the new analysis of existing datasets. The intention of the call is to develop a pipeline of research in order to better understand the underlying pathways and mechanisms of these mental health conditions. The resulting insights into causal or mechanistic understanding should aim to inform future prevention and treatment studies in the longer-term.
Call open for applications in Je-S: Tuesday 8 May 2018
Applications deadline: Thursday 26 July 2018
Panel meeting: Tuesday 27 November 2018
Decision to applicants: November 2018
