When a funding call has closed, the applications submitted to us undergo a review process. This involves peer and lay review, with recommendations for shortlisting and funding provided by our Committees. As a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities, we follow their principles of peer review.
Every member of our Committee has signed a terms of reference and confidentiality agreement (which vary for each funding competition).
The membership to the Committees have been carefully selected to ensure a broad range of expertise. The involvement of clinicians/researchers who are independent of the Charity is essential in achieving rigorous and transparent advice.
