The Research Award 2020 is now closed

Each year we invite applications for the BTF Research Award.                                                        

We offer a £20,000 annual award to support a two-year research project into thyroid function or thyroid disorders.

The award can be used to supplement existing projects or to help get research ideas started.

We are keen to support the crucial role that researchers fulfill in providing the best treatment for people with thyroid disorders.

The BTF 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.
