Movember Translational Research Grants

Movember Translational Research Grants are available to researchers in the UK in a recognised academic or clinical institution to fund research that results in a significant step along the translational pathway.

The application process has two stages. Expressions of Interest will be assessed for fit against our research strategy as well as whether they have the potential for translation of previous findings, and whether that translational step would move those findings significantly closer to clinical implementation. No upper funding limit is set for individual projects but value for money will be considered as part of the funding decision.
