Bupa Foundation – Philip Poole-Wilson Seed Corn Fund

The Philip Poole-Wilson Seed Corn Fund invites proposals for exploratory/pilot research projects in any of the Foundation’s areas of interest. These are:

  • Surgery
  • Preventive medicine and epidemiology
  • Health information and communication between patients and health professionals
  • Health at work
  • Mental health of older people

The grant awarded should be used to help an applicant develop their ideas, such as to support pilot work, or to bring together a team of people to work on a proposal. Healthcare professionals involved in research or university-based researchers with an interest in health or social care, based in the UK may apply.

Each application must be made either by a researcher beginning their research career or, if a pilot project by an experienced researcher, must include such a researcher on the team and contribute meaningfully to his/her development and training. High priority will be given to applications from young and/or new researchers who have not previously been funded.

A total of £200,000 is available each year and grants of up to £20,000 per proposal.

Closing date: 6 July 2012
