BMA Foundation research grants


The BMA Foundation for Medical Research awards research grants each year (totalling approximately £780,000) to encourage and further medical research in a variety of areas. One of these grants, the HC Roscoe, is to assist research into the elimination of the common cold and/or other viral diseases of the human respiratory system. Applications are invited from UK-registered medical practitioners or research scientists working in the UK, and can be for either research in progress or prospective research.
