Tuesday, 12 November 2013 15:06
PEDDCReN is an exciting new initiative with the key aim of forming a clinical trials network to study (and ultimately provide) effective medicines for paediatric patients in the speciality of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. It was established with the support of LINKS funding from the UEG and is led by the BSG in collaboration with various European societies and ENPR-EMA (The European Network of Paediatric Research at the European Medicines Agency). The project will support both industry and non-industry investigators in running high quality multi-centre clinical trials and your involvement is welcome.

MRC Public Health Intervention Development Scheme (PHIND)
Wednesday, 06 November 2013 09:53
The Public Health Intervention Development scheme (PHIND) is a new MRC funding scheme designed specifically to provide support for early phase development of public health interventions. This rapid response funding scheme is aimed at improving the initial evidence on which the development and evaluation of public health interventions are based. Studies should address an important UK or global public health issue and offer an innovative approach to intervention development or applying an existing intervention in a new setting.
The scheme's remit ranges from primary research developing and designing the intervention to feasibility studies, encompassing:
- developing theory
- modelling process and outcomes
- assessing feasibility
Systematic reviews, meta analyses and pilot studies are outside the remit of the PHIND scheme. Applicants can apply for up to £150K for a maximum of 18 months and the scheme will operate three times a year. For further information, please see the MRC website.
