Where to find funding

Researchers wanting to undertake research through GECIP will need to apply to a funding body through response mode or specific funding calls that are targeted at using the Genomics England dataset. These applications will be subject to approval via the scientific peer review process by funders.

Wellcome Trust

The Wellcome Trust have expressed an interest in seeing funding applications from GECIP members. Find a research scheme on the Wellcome Trust website.

Medical Research Council

The Medical Research Council would be happy to receive applications from GECIP members through any of their funding schemes.

The Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund

As part of the UK Industrial Strategy, the government will invest up to £20m in the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund.

The challenge fund is delivered by Innovate UK, as part of UK Research and Innovation.

US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

The FDA has grants for studies investigating the natural history of rare diseases, available to any foreign or domestic, public or private, for-profit or non-profit entity.

Funding can include research being performed at foreign sites; all or part of the funding can be used to support foreign clinical study sites. For more information see the FDA website.

The GECIP Board

The Genomics England Clinical Interpretation Partnership is overseen by the GECIP Board. The Board will be informed of funding applications under development.

It includes representatives from several funding bodies who have substantially contributed to the work of Genomics England.
