Internal Funding - Translational Research Office Administered Funds

Therapeutic Innovation Fund

Established in 2009, the UCL Therapeutic Innovation Fund provides seed funding to support the development of a high-quality therapeutic pipeline through the translation of UCL biomedical innovations towards clinical patient benefit. The fund is available to investigators from UCL and welcomes applications across the therapeutic spectrum.

The fifth call is now closed.

Confidence in Concept

In December 2014, UCL was awarded a further £700,000 by the MRC to support the UCL Confidence in Concept fund. The fund is to be used flexibly to support the earliest stages of multiple translational research projects. It is intended to accelerate the transition from discovery research to translational development projects by supporting preliminary work or feasibility studies to establish the viability of an approach.

The third call is now closed.
