Our 2019 Small Research Grant Awards

All applications received were reviewed by ANTRUK’s Science Committee and / or Education Committees. External reviewers were also used. ANTRUK adopted the scoring system developed by the Medical Research Council for use by independent referees.

A shortlist of the top scoring applications was made and members of our Science Committee prioritised the applications. ANTRUK’s Trustees were asked to ratify decisions to award grants.
