British Thyroid Foundation Award
Since 1997 the British Thyroid Foundation (BTF) has offered an annual award of £20,000 to support a two-year research project into thyroid function or thyroid disorders.
The closing date for your 2022 application has now passed.
The usual format for applying is the completion of an application form accompanied by a short CV and photograph. We will update any relevant information regarding this for 2023
The award can be used to supplement existing projects or to help get research ideas started. The funds are available for consumables, running costs and equipment but not personal computers. Any equipment purchased will belong to your institution after the project is completed. Support for staff costs/salaries will only be considered if they can be justified.
The BTF is a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) non-commercial Partner. This means the studies that we fund may be eligible to access the NIHR Study Support Service which is provided by the NIHR Clinical Research Network.
Who can apply?
Researchers working on projects in the UK. The project must be based in the UK (i.e. the majority of the work must be carried out in the UK), supervised in the UK and publications arising from the research must be in an English language journal from a UK centre. The BTF must be acknowledged in any publication. The applicant must ensure that appropriate ethical approval is in place wherever research is carried out.
