Annually, Thrombosis UK offers grants for healthcare professionals and scientists whose study will help improve the experience and outcomes of VTE patents or extend the understanding of thrombosis.

Applications open: Monday 4th January 2021 – Wednesday 31st March 2021

This grant is intended to support the development of UK-based pilot studies of well-defined VTE patient populations and expected to generate valuable datasets that will support a future large scale research grant application.

The ideal pilot study would provide a framework for initial research in an area of VTE where funding is limited. Thrombosis UK is unable to provide long-term support and so it is envisaged that the support provided by Thrombosis UK in this Pilot Study Grant will enable applications to other funders for large-scale continuing support after completion of the pilot study.

Maximum value up to £15,000 with a time frame expected between 6-12 months.
