Nasal decolonisation of MRSA



The HTA Programme is considering this topic for future commissioned research.

The likely advert date for this topic, if prioritised, 23 rd March 2020. However, please note this is an
indicative date, which may change.

The commissioning brief, published when the call opens, will provide details of the topic. If you
would like notification of when HTA calls go live please sign up to receive our bulletin.

If you have a comment or question about this potential future research topic, please email

Alternatively, if you are interested in contributing to the development of our future topic areas, you
can help by becoming a reviewer.

Please note that commissioning briefs take priority over applications to researcher-led funding calls.
If a stage 1 application is submitted to the researcher-led programme on a similar topic to this or any
proposed research areas for HTA commissioned calls, it is likely to be deferred and either:

  • The applicant will be given an opportunity to tailor their application to the commissioning brief,
    once the commissioning brief is advertised, and submit it in response to this


  • If we do not advertise the commissioning brief, the application will continue through the
    researcher-led work stream in the usual way.
