MRC/ESRC/BBSRC-Versus Arthritis: Advanced Pain Discovery Platform – Expression of Interest for Multidisciplinary Consortia for Data Generation

  Monday, 31 Aug 2020 | Funding Deadline

The call will provide funding for collaborative multidisciplinary consortia that will focus on:

  • Pursuing innovative and ambitious “big ideas” in chronic pain research, which will enable a step change in the field.
  • Improving our understanding of the mechanisms of pain, building on our knowledge of normal pain processes to better understand chronic pain, taking into account biological, cognitive and psychosocial factors.
  • Collating, generating and interrogating human data and samples, to allow for the identification and validation of new interventions, and to allow improved access to well-phenotyped human populations.

It is expected that successful consortia will focus on chronic pain, offering important insights across chronic pain conditions. Applications may be focussed on specific pain-related disorders, or may consider common mechanisms underlying multiple pain conditions.

Deadline for proposals: 4pm on 31st August 2020
