LUPUS UK does not currently fund large-scale trials. A cap of £25,000 on any research grants is in place for applications. The charity will look to support applications which focus on the following:
• Enabling grants for basic science support, which would enable larger projects by providing essential data for large grant applications.
• Medical meetings, which would facilitate improvements to the understanding of the causes, prevention and treatment of lupus, and its research.
LUPUS UK is willing to work collaboratively with other charities where research interests overlap. LUPUS UK will not fund individual institutions, long-term career posts, travel or open access publication costs.
Typically we accept applications twice each year, in the spring and in the autumn, with the final decisions being advised during May and November respectively.
