The definition of 'enabling technology' or 'translational' research has been left open, as a range of studies could be defined under these terms, for example, use of stem cells in animal models, expansion of cells or routes of delivery of stem cells.
Applications that focus on basic aspects, such as differentiation of stem cells, should be submitted to other funding mechanisms.
The Foundation welcomes applications from universities, hospitals or recognised academic institutions in the UK. Please refer to our document on Assessment Criteria for applications.
Applicants are encouraged to submit an outline application form in the first instance, which will be reviewed initially by our Trustees and will undergo a full peer-review process. If successful, applicants will then be invited to submit a full application form for consideration by the Board of Trustees. The Board meets on a quarterly basis.
