Visualisations can be immensely helpful, especially when translated into interactive tools to ease access and further understanding.

If you're a biomedical researcher struggling with getting 'the big picture' when it comes to research funding, the Medical Research Council (MRC) has come to the rescue!

MRC, along with Alzheimer’s Research UK, Alzheimer’s Society, the British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, the NC3Rs, the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and Wellcome Trust have joined forces to create an interactive map of funding schemes available to biomedical researchers. It provides an outline and related links for each type of award, including the required level of experience, level of funding and duration.

The first of its kind focused on medical research, the aim of the ‘funding view’ resource is to help members of the research community view and compare different funding schemes across career stages.

The best way to find out more about the tool is to use it - so please do head to the MRC website and check it out! If you find a scheme you're interested in applying to, don't forget to to reach out to the ARU Research Services Team. We're here to help!
