The first British Thyroid Foundation Research Award was made in 1997. The value of the annual award is up to £20,000 to support medical research projects. The award can be used to supplement existing projects or help get new research ideas started. Funds will be awarded for consumables, running costs and equipment.
We invite applications for research that is specifically directed to the study of thyroid disorders or investigations into the basic understanding of thyroid function.
The British Thyroid Foundation is an NIHR partner organisation in respect of its research awards funding stream. Studies funded through this funding stream are eligible for inclusion in the NIHR Clinical Research Network Portfolio and therefore able to access NHS support via the NIHR Clinical Research Network infrastructure.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 31 August each year.
