Borne offers funding to take the most promising ideas in the field forward, encourage collaboration and support career development.
2021 Research Grant Call
We are announcing a research funding call to identify a research group or consortium of scientists capable of delivering a study that confirms the feasibility of a systematic study of the biological interactions across different cells and tissues in the human uterus; and the outline of opportunities to test and expand on novel discoveries that can help prevent the onset of preterm labour.
Borne is initially offering funding of up to £500,000 to support such a study over the next 18-24 months before announcing a multi-million pound effort that will also be competitively awarded to launch Borne’s Uterine Mapping Project (BUMP).
Applications must be received by 17:00 GMT on Friday 5 March 2021
Other 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.
