British Heart Foundation: Clinical Study Grants

  Wednesday, 29 Jul 2020 | Funding Deadline

BHF Clinical Study Grants support:

  • Interventional clinical trials: trials of specific interventions or pathways of care for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Interventions include drugs, surgery, devices, psychological, physical and educational interventions.
  • Observational studies: these studies are for specific patient groups that are hypothesis led and address a defined clinical question(s) over a fixed timescale (up to 5 years). The population of interest should be a patient population, who will usually be recruited within the NHS. The study should have a predefined outcome(s) that will lead to changes in clinical management directly or will inform the development of a clinical trial to test an intervention.

Clinical studies can include a mechanistic evaluation, either as a substudy within a clinical trial or as part of an observational study. The Clinical Study Grant can also support pilot/feasibility studies and follow-on studies of interventional trials that cost less than £300,000 and are of shorter duration than 3 years.
