Research Grant Funding – Aortic Dissection

The Aortic Dissection Charitable Trust is now accepting applications for pump-priming research grant funding in the field of aortic dissection.  

Initially, a one-year award will be provided to support projects with the overall aim of improving the clinical care of patients, to save lives and improve the quality of life for those suffering from aortic dissection.  

Members of the multidisciplinary team and researchers involved in the care of patients with aortic dissection are invited to apply.  

Our research awards are open

The Aortic Dissection Charitable Trust has a fund of £20,000 in the first year that can be used for pump priming of appropriate research projects.

  • We aim to fund 3-4 studies.
  • The projects must be in the field of aortic dissection but may be used to fund or part-fund any aspect of the research being carried out.
  • Applications for patients and public engagement, pilot studies and support of ongoing research projects will all be considered.
  • If patient, relative or public engagement is required this will be provided by the charity’s Research Advisory Group.

How applications will be judged

Research studies will be judged and ranked by the Research Advisory Group members on the following criteria:
• study design
• relevance and timeliness of research
• potential to lead to direct patient benefit in the short, medium or long term
