The Brain Research Trust recently launched its first national call for project grant applications. The charity has funded neurological research at UCL Institute of Neurology since it was founded in 1971 but has broadened its charitable objects and will now fund research at centres of excellence throughout the UK. The call for applications is open and the charity is looking to fund projects in these priority areas:
- Acquired brain damage: research into interventions that promote recovery at the impairment level, particularly those that bring together enhanced plasticity or stimulation with rehabilitation
- Neuro-oncology: research addressing the biology, treatment and diagnosis of primary brain tumours and associated neurological complications
- Headache and facial pain: research addressing the fundamental causes, mechanisms and relief of headache and facial pain
The application deadline is 29 March 2017. Visit brt.org.uk/research-grants for more information.
