OHSRC Research Grants

Oxfordshire Health Services Research Committee (OHSRC) Research Grants

Grants of up to £10,000 are made to salaried staff working within the NHS in Oxfordshire, including those with honorary contracts, and to general practitioners.

The OHSRC aims to:

  • support research in the areas of
    • clinical research
    • community/primary care research
    • relevant laboratory studies
  • provide opportunities for research by health service workers arising out of, and closely related to, their day-to-day practice
  • wholly fund small projects or pilot studies which can be carried out within two years
  • provide opportunities for younger researchers who are in the early years of their research careers (this normally means that established researchers are very unlikely to receive an award).

The Committee's funding comes from research legacies left to Oxford Hospitals Charity and an annual grant from the Nuffield Oxford Hospitals Fund (NOHF) charity.

Funds are limited and awards are made on the scientific merit of the application.

The OHSRC will consider all eligible applications, but would particularly welcome applications relating to the following topics:

  • Alzheimer's research
  • Cancer research
  • Glaucoma research

The OHSRC Chair is also happy to discuss the suitability of any applications. This is currently Professor Chris Pugh.

Application forms and further details can be obtained from:

Catherine King, Secretary to the OHSRC


Tel: 01865 612680

The closing date for applications for this round is Tuesday 17 March 2020.
