Trials Methodology Research Partnership Grant – now OPEN!


Global Health Network has announced that the Trials Methodology Research Partnership (TMRP) has made available funds for small pump-priming grants of between £2000 and £10000 specifically for methods research relevant to low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

The past decade has seen the emergence of the field of clinical trials methodology research – which includes research about the way clinical trials are designed, conducted, analyzed, reported and interpreted. This field stemmed from the need to ensure that clinical trials are designed, conducted, analyzed, reported and interpreted so that they are optimal and responsive for a broad range of stakeholders. Out of this, the new MRC/NIHR Trials Methodology Research Partnership (TMRP) was initiated in June 2019 to increase capacity for trials methodology research, with the following Working Groups: Stratified Medicine, Health Informatics, Adaptive Designs, Outcomes, Trial Conduct, Health Economics, Statistical Analysis, and Global Health.

The Global Health Working Group aims to ensure that the voices of those working in clinical trials in LMICs are heard, as it cannot be assumed that the same methods will be important, relevant or acceptable in every context. In particular, clinical trials methodology researchers in low resource settings may both benefit from, and contribute to, ongoing developments in clinical trial methodology research globally. The deadline for submissions is midnight (GMT) 1st March 2020.
