Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International scholars, researchers, employees of the NHS, and companies to develop treatments for COVID-19/Coronavirus. Funding is intended to support applicants that have therapeutics that could be re-purposed or re-positioned for use in COVID-19 patients. As the primary goal of the program is to accelerate availability of treatments for patients, it is expected that applicants will already have material available for testing and a plan for rapid scale up of clinical material. The grant will pay for the direct costs of the trials and the associated science.

Plans for the structure of the clinical trials should be in advanced stages of development and should follow the specialist guidance from the regulators on COVID-19 trials. The aim is to run trials in patients during the current epidemic. It is anticipated that applications will be for funding to re-purpose one or more drugs that are generic, already licensed, or are in late stage development for another indication. There is a clear need for new treatments that will reduce the mortality rate while a vaccine is not yet available.

The expectation is that the data obtained will be shared openly. Where  knowledge is obtained that could benefit the development of other COVID-19 therapeutics, this should be done as quickly as is reasonably possible.
