We are proud to re-advertise the clinical grant funding scheme from The Diabetes Care Trust and The Association of British Clinical Diabetologists for high quality clinically based studies costing up to £50,000. We would particularly like to encourage applications from those at an earlier stage of their clinical and academic training, and clinical projects relating to the management and care of people with diabetes. The funding scheme will allow access to additional support from the NIHR Clinical Research Networks for research projects, and will also consider projects relating to education, service evaluation and audit.
