NIHR and MRC Multimorbidity funding opportunity

Multimorbidity in the UK population: understanding disease clustering

The Medical Research Council (MRC) and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) are issuing a joint call for research projects into disease clustering in multimorbidity.

Awards of up to £600,000 (funders’ contribution) are available for up to 36 months.

Funding is available for exploratory or hypothesis-driven research that will systematically identify or explore common disease clusters, their distributions in diverse groups, multimorbidity trajectories and/or the underpinning mechanisms across the life course. Applications from cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional teams are encouraged to develop research in this important field. A total of £3m is available for this call.

The closing date is the 9th October at 4pm
