Medical Research Foundation: Launchpad Grants in Mental Health

  Monday, 27 Sep 2021 | Funding Deadline

The Medical Research Foundation’s Launchpad Grants will support early and mid-career researchers and clinical academics, whose research will increase understanding of mental health, and improve diagnosis, treatment and recovery. The funding should be used to develop multidisciplinary partnerships with researchers in other fields, acting as a launchpad for larger funding opportunities and further research.

Applications within a broad field of mental health research are welcomed. However, they particularly encourage applications from areas that have been identified as in need of funding, including ADHD, Tourette’s, suicide and self-harm, and trauma-related mental health.

Applicants should aim to develop multidisciplinary collaborations with researchers in other fields, expanding the applicant’s research networks and building their research profile. The grants can be used to conduct pilot studies, generate data and collaborations, and develop competitive research proposals for larger funding.

 

Deadline for proposals: 27 September 2021
