The Medical Research Council and seven other research funding bodies have developed an interactive map of funding options including studentships, awards and grants for biomedical researchers at all stages of their careers. This provides an easy way for researchers to compare current funding options across the UK and worldwide.
The map offers a user-friendly approach to finding funding opportunities relevant to your career position. The different types of opportunities, studentships, grants and awards, will lead you to an uncomplicated list of existing grants you can apply for. Eligibility varies depending on the selected grant. Some opportunities are available to applicants worlwide while some are restricted to UK-based researchers only.
The map also includes a ‘career’ feature which allows the user to navigate possible career paths from apprenticeships and undergraduate degrees through to professorships, managerial roles, specialist directors and more. Case studies show the routes people have taken to get to their position as well as advice for early-career researchers.
