Funding for researchers TEMP


Borne offers funding to take the most promising ideas in the field forward, encourage collaboration and support career development.

Project funding

Borne’s Scientific Advisory Board meets twice a year to consider applications for research funding. 

All applications are subject to expert peer review. The SAB puts forward their funding recommendation to Borne’s Board of Trustees.


Borne offers two prestigious fellowships in partnership with UKRI’s Medical Research Council.

The joint funded Clinical Research Training Fellowship supports a clinician to undertake a PhD or other higher research degree. 

Borne and Action Medical Research jointly award up to £500,000 each year to scientists who apply for project grants in our area of interest. The 2020 grant round is now closed.

The Career Development Award supports talented post-doctoral researchers to lead their own research plans and establish their own research team to make the transition to independent investigator.
