Applications now invited for Asthma UK Centre Applied Research
9 May 2012Asthma UK is delighted to launch the 'call for applications' for funding to establish a multi-site, multi-disciplinary, UK-wide Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research.
Details of the call and how to submit an expression of interest can be found on the Asthma UK website at: http://www.asthma.org.uk/how-we-help/groundbreaking-research/for-researchers/apply-for-funding/applied-research-centre/ (please copy and paste this link into your browser).
A copy of the call for applications is also attached for ease of reference. The deadline for submitting expressions of interest is Friday 15 June at 1pm.
The intention is to bring together UK clinical investigators in the field of applied asthma research, who might otherwise be working in isolation, to create an internationally renowned centre of excellence to develop interventions which will reduce asthma-related morbidity and mortality over the next 5-10 years.

An open information event about the new Centre will be held at Asthma UK's offices in London from 2pm to 4.30pm on Tuesday 15 May 2012. Groups who wish to submit an expression of interest must have at least one representative who will be a named applicant attend the event.
At this event, you will be able to ask questions about the call and learn more about what Asthma UK expect to see in both the initial expressions of interest and the full applications. If you are interested in attending this event, please email the Research Team at firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for bookings is Thursday 10th May. Asthma UK is happy to receive questions in advance of the briefing event by the same deadline, in order to enable them to provide an informed response on the day.
