In order to apply you will need to carefully review the:
The NIHR programmes and research funding schemes have a highlight notice for brain tumours. For details of this NIHR-wide highlight notice, please see our themed calls page.
Please note that this researcher-led call is open to all relevant research areas, and does not just include these highlight notices. If you are responding to a highlight notice, please indicate this in the application form in Section 6, Question 1 ‘What is the problem being addressed?’
Any changes to these dates will be emailed to all Lead Applicants with an application in progress.

Please note, if a very high response is received, some applications may not be taken forward for further assessment if they are deemed to be non-competitive and/or it may be necessary to defer some applications until a later date. 'Non-Competitive' means that an application is not of a sufficiently high standard to be taken forward for further assessment in comparison with other applications received and funded by the PHR Programme because it has little or no realistic prospect of funding. This may be because of scientific quality, cost, scale/duration, or the makeup of the project team.
All primary research projects are expected to establish a programme appointed Study/Trial Steering Committee and it is important that you read the TSC/SSC Guidance before completing your application. Costs incurred by this committee should be included in the budget as appropriate.
