NIHR welcomes proposals for research into mesothelioma

June 18, 2014

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is welcoming proposals for clinical and applied health research into mesothelioma. NIHR operates a number of research funding schemes and would like to receive high quality proposals on any aspect of mesothelioma, its prevention, earlier diagnosis, treatment or care (including palliative care) – where there are likely to be benefits for patients or their families, within 5 years of the end of the research.

The following seven NIHR-managed research programmes will be participating:

  • Efficacy and Mechanism Evaluation (EME)
  • Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR)
  • Health Technology Assessment (HTA)
  • Invention for Innovation (i4i)
  • Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR)
  • Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB)
  • NIHR Fellowships programme

Research proposals must be within the remit of one of the participating programmes and applicants should carefully consider the remit described for each programme. However, this call provides opportunities to evaluate interventions which cross NIHR programme boundaries and applications which span the remit of one or more NIHR programme will be considered. The inclusion of patient views and experiences are considered important by each participating programme.
