Small grant awards support small pilot studies such as generation of preliminary data or feasibility studies which would not normally attract funding. The aim is to make novel ideas more competitive for larger follow up funding grants.

We have partnered with Fight for Sight to offer a small grant up to £15,000 to clinical or research scientists to support vision loss related research in Epidermolysis Bullosa and should be used to collect preliminary/pilot data to develop follow on applications. Researchers currently working in fields outside of vision research are welcome to apply.

  • DEBRA/Fight for Sight Small Grant Awards: July 2022.
  • Opens early April 2022 with a deadline of 28 July 2022 5pm.

How to apply

Application is through the Fight for Sight website, where you can also find guidance on the application process. If you wish to discuss your proposed research area in advance of submission, please contact Dr Sagair Hussain, our Director of Research: [email protected].
