APS Support UK Research Fund

We are now offering small grants of up to £5,000 for research projects specifically concentrating on antiphospholipid syndrome. 

APS Support UK, is a grant making charity recognised by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) as a non-commercial partner funding research of clear value to the NHS as a result of open competition with high quality peer review. 
 

Applications will be considered for:
  • Smaller pilot studies which will lead to applications to major funders for large-scale research trials

  • Enabling grants for basic science support that would enable larger projects by providing essential data for large grant applications

  • Support for organising medical meetings that would facilitate improvements to the understanding of the causes, prevention and treatment of APS, and its research (NB maximum grant £1000)

  • Travel awards to enable scientists or clinicians in training to attend national or international meetings to present their own research. The maximum award will be £1000 and we will require a letter from the applicant’s supervisor confirming that they are in training, and proof that their research has been accepted for presentation
APS Support UK is willing to work collaboratively with other charities where research interests overlap.
