    The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is being felt across the breadth of society. We know that this is a deeply challenging time for the people who use our services, our staff, and for our research grant recipients.

    We believe that everyone’s immediate focus should rightly be on their safety and well-being, that of their families, and those that they are responsible for.

    The intention of this position paper is to inform research grant holders of our position with regards to maintenance of grants, and how we will support you, in what are fast-changing circumstances. This is a “live” document, and subject to change.

    If you are a grant holder, and have concerns about the impact of COVID-19 on your research, please contact us.

More detail about our research grants programme 

Each year, we invite researchers from our local universities to apply to our research grants programme. Through this programme, we fund local researchers to carry out high quality research that delivers real benefits to people living with chest, heart, and stroke conditions.

  • Researchers who are located within Northern Ireland, and who can demonstrate an interest in the fields of chest, heart and stroke illness, are invited to apply.

    Successful applications:

    • Must meet the criteria outlined in the guidance document.
    • Will clearly fit with our Research Strategy and wider aims and values
  • This year's programme has been suspended.

  • We only fund the best quality, local research. We choose this through a rigorous peer review process, and all research is regularly monitored and assessed.

    Read more about how we choose the research we fund here.
