Tenovus Scotland makes a key difference to Scottish medical research development through medical research grants and scholarships. Preference is given to:

  • Preliminary pump priming studies, which are thought likely to lead to subsequent funding from major grant-giving bodies
  • Innovative patient-related projects
  • Early career investigators
  • Applications from investigators lacking other substantive support in the early stages of a new project
  • Recent recruits
  • New collaborations between established investigators
