Contact our Research Funding Team

At Leeds Teaching Hospital NHS Trust Research and Innovation Department, we can support you from the initial stages of conception of a research idea, to identify and apply for funding;

  • To develop your career as a researcher.
  • To carry out a research project or a programme of research activity.
  • To attend a conference, to obtain funding for research specific equipment.
  • Patient Public Involvement funding.

We are also here to assist you to prepare and submit a high quality research funding application.

Your first point of contact is the Research Funding and Development Manager, who is based within the Research and Innovation Centre.
