Call for Medical Research Foundation Launchpad Grants in Mental Health 2024 is open now!!! 

This funding call in Mental Health research is now open for applications. The deadline for submission is 12:00 on Wednesday 8 May 2024.

The Medical Research Foundation is inviting mid-career researchers in the field of mental health to apply for up to £100,000 to support their research.

Get the Youth Opportunities iOS App here for the fully-funded opportunities.

Funded research should increase understanding of mental health, and improve diagnosis, treatment and recovery. It will also act as a launchpad for further research suitable for larger funding opportunities.

Applications within a broad field of mental health research are welcomed. However, they particularly encourage applications from neglected areas of mental health, including suicide and self-harm, trauma-related mental health, borderline personality disorder and OCD. Neurodevelopmental disorders are considered within the scope of this competition, and they particularly encourage applications from researchers working in ADHD and Tourette’s.

Applicants to the Launchpad Grants in Mental Health can use the funding to conduct pilot studies, generate data and collaborations, and develop competitive research proposals for larger funding. The research should have a UK focus; prior work leading to the application does not need to be solely UK-based, but the applicant should make clear the relevance of the proposed research for mental health in the UK.

Proposals are particularly encouraged from those looking to develop multidisciplinary partnerships 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.

The research they fund is only possible thanks to the generosity of their donors. This competition is supported by a gift in Will from Catherine Mary Evans, and numerous other donors.
