BMA foundation for medical research


The work of the BMA foundation for medical research (formerly known as BMA research grants) continues to be a success, funding important, innovative research to advance medical research and the medical profession. We have been awarding funds to support medical research since 1839.

Every year, around 10 research grants totalling £500,000 are awarded to winning applications.

The grants provide funding for a variety of different subject areas, ranging from research into rheumatism and arthritis, to cardiovascular disease, cancer and neurological disorders.

Applications to the 2017 BMA foundation for medical research grants will open on 05 December 2016 and close on 03 March 2017.
