Medical Research Foundation: Climate change and health

  Tuesday, 13 Sep 2022 | Funding Deadline

The Medical Research Foundation is committing £4 million towards new research aimed at tackling the impact of climate change on health in sub-Saharan Africa. Applications are invited for collaborative research grants from mid-career researchers working on the impact of climate change on health. The scheme is open to pairs of mid-career researchers, in countries in sub-Saharan Africa and the UK, who are making the transition to research independence and seeking to progress in their field. Projects should aim to develop a new collaboration or solidify an existing partnership between two researchers, expanding their research networks and building their research profiles to develop emerging research leaders in both countries.

Research supported through these grants should aim to increase understanding of the mechanisms underpinning, and processes involved, in the impact of climate change on infectious diseases and other non-infectious health outcomes that disproportionately affect tropical regions.

Deadline for proposals: 13 September 2022
