Review process

All grants will be initially assessed by our internal scientific committee to confirm eligibility, adherence to application stipulations and that they fall within our scientific remit. Applications will be scored by a scientific panel based on their application form (written clarity, feasibility, experimental plan) and record of the supervisor. Shortlisted applications will then be reviewed further by an expert panel and the best projects will be selected for funding
