[A version of this abstract appears in: Dementia: the Latest Evidence Newsletter (RWHT) Volume 1 Issue 8 March 2011].
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is calling for proposals regarding research into dementia, starting in March 2011. The scope of this call extends broadly across most fields of research, including the cause, cure, care and/or prevention of dementia.
High quality applications are invited for any of the seven NIHR managed research programmes:
- Efficacy and Mechanism Evaluation (EME).
- Health Services Research (HSR).
- Health Technology Assessment (HTA).
- Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR).
- Public Health Research (PHR).
- Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB).
- Service Delivery and Organisation (SDO).
Note: Research proposals which support multi-disciplinary and cross-professional collaborations are encouraged. Similarly, applications which may lead to improvement in the prevention, diagnosis, assessment, treatment, management or care of people with dementia are welcomed.
“Research should seek to demonstrate benefits to the health and/or well-being of individuals with dementia or their carers and/or improvements in the organisation or delivery of care”.
Application forms are available from Tuesday March 1st 2011. The deadline by which completed forms must be submitted is May 20th 2011. Funding decisions will be made before the end of March 2012.
The NIHR provides support to assist in the development of grant applications; refer to the Dementias & Neurodegenerative Diseases Research Network (DeNDRoN) Writing Groups and the Research Design Service.
