Your local branch of the NIHR RDS (Research Design Service) is based within the BU Clinical Research Unit (BUCRU) If you need help with patient and public involvement (PPI) or any other aspect of your grant application, don’t hesitate to get in touch in the new year.
We advise on all aspects of developing an application and can review application drafts as well as put them to a mock funding panel (run by RDS South West) known as Project Review Committee, which is a fantastic opportunity for researchers to obtain a critical review of a proposed grant application before this is sent to a funding body or if you’re hoping to resubmit the panel can provide some excellent tips and feedback.
Contact us as early as possible to benefit fully from the advice
