Board or Panel Portfolio (MRC only)

The information you provide here will help assist the Council in selecting reviewers and will aid us in routing the proposal to the correct Programme Manager.  When submitting an application you must ensure that the Call details selected under the Project Details section of the Je-S the document corresponds to the selection made under ‘Board’ to allow the proposal to be directed to the correct Board/Panel/Committee/Scheme. Failure to do this may result in a delay in the Research Council’s processing of the application.

If you are unsure as to all the MRC bodies that exist and their remits then please follow the link to our web pages on the subject.

Human Biological Samples

Does your work involve human Biological samples: research which involves laboratory studies on human material which are specifically designed to understand or treat a disease / disorder? NB: basic biomedical research remote from application to a disease / disorder, such as the use of immortalised human cell lines in model biological systems, is excluded.

Technology Development

Does your work involve Technology development for clinical use: development or adaptation of technologies for diagnosis or therapy, e.g. instrument development for diagnostic or surgical use; development of new techniques, such as photodynamic therapy, for clinical use.

Research Setting

Indicate weather the research involves a particular medical setting such as primary care or secondary care. This should be applied whether the research is based on direct patient contact, samples, or data, provided that the research is directly relevant to the problems being addressed in that setting.

Stem Cells

The aim here is to identify basic, translational and clinical research that is intended to lead to the use of stem cells for therapy and other applications relevant to health. Use of stem cells as a tool in transgenics, and most basic developmental biology, should not be flagged.

Developing Countries

Will the research involve a substantial component in developing countries? If so select those that apply.

Keywords
