Action Medical Research for Children: Translational funding

  Wednesday, 09 Jun 2021 | Funding Deadline

Action Medical Research and LifeArc want to improve the lives of children suffering from rare disease and are working together to co-fund translational, rare disease research projects. Co-funding aims to accelerate promising, cutting-edge medical research that could have a significant impact on the treatment of infants, children and young people (CYP) with any of the >7000 heterogeneous conditions collectively called ‘rare disease’.

The joint fund will be used to support biomedical research projects from across the UK that have moved beyond a basic understanding of rare disease mechanism into the development of an intervention (therapeutic, diagnostic, or device).

Applications should:

  • address a significant, unmet need for CYP with rare disease
  • have a strong scientific rationale
  • be a target-driven, milestoned project with a credible delivery plan
  • have a clear route to patients.


Deadline for proposals: 09 June 2021
