BMA Foundation for Medical Research


Each year the BMA Foundation for Medical Research funds important, innovative research to advance medicine, medical research and the medical profession. Through the foundation, the BMA has been supporting medical research since 1839 and is the oldest medical organisation in the world to award grants and prizes to encourage further medical research.

Thanks to the support of generous individuals, in 2017 twelve research grants totalling £625,000 will be awarded to winning applicants.

The grants provide funding for a variety of different subject areas, ranging from research into rheumatism and arthritis, to cardiovascular disease, cancer and neurological disorders.

The application window is now closed. Applications to the 2018 BMA foundation will open in December 2017 and close in March 2018.
