Eric Reid Fund
The Fund was endowed by a Trust (Guildford Academic Associates) co-founded by Dr Eric Reid, an Emeritus Member. The emphasis is on methodology, with a preference for cellular or bioanalytical work. Consideration will be given only to applications that are carefully compiled and scientifically convincing.
Examples of awards:
Feasibility studies by new staff before they apply to a major award-granting body
Developing a new technique
- Checking the application of a known technique in new circumstances
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
The purpose of the grant must be to set up or improve methodology, with appropriate validation. This allows trying out new ideas.
The laboratory, and especially the applicant, should not already be involved in several projects.
The submission must cite any existing support and any relevant fund-seeking (or approach to a company) that is pending or has been rejected, or which the proposed work might render feasible. An applicant must cite any previous application to the Fund.
Where a short-term stipend is sought, the person must be engaged in benchwork rather than writing-up; if it is for a student, the application should state whether the work would be done before the student's final year.
Bench expenditure may include special materials or minor capital items.
Funding will not be awarded in two consecutive years.
You must be a member of this organization to apply for this award - become a member. Applicants must be a current Early Career, Full or Emeritus member of the Biochemical Society at the closing date of the round applied to.
