Research Funding – provided by St George’s Hospital Charity

St George’s Hospital Charity’s has now established a Research Funding Programme. This will allow the Charity to fund Trust and University staff to conduct research that will make a positive impact on patient care within the Trust, its surrounding communities and the wider NHS.


The purpose of the Research Funding Programme is to advance clinical research at St George’s in line with the research strategy agreed with the Trust and the University. As part of our charitable objectives, we are committed to supporting our hospitals and University to undertake pioneering research and invest in the research training and development of hospital staff for the benefit of patients.

A key aim of the project is to allow Trust and University staff to develop their personal research skills within an established research group whilst undertaking a project that furthers the research aims of the Trust and University. It is intended that successful applicants will be able to utilise the skills and data produced in research projects to springboard onto successful funding bids for further study. It is anticipated that applications will consist of a multidisciplinary team to include colleague/s working within the Trust.
