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 a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) non-commercial Partner. This means the studies that we fund may be eligible to access the NIHR Study Support Service which is provided by the NIHR Clinical Research Network. 

In partnership with your local R&D office, we encourage you to involve your local NIHR Clinical Research Network team in discussions as early as possible when planning your study. This will enable you to fully benefit from the support available through the NIHR Study Support Service. To find out more, please visit: www.nihr.ac.uk/study-support-service
