ME Research UK does not fund research which involves the use of animals.

In common with other charitable organisations, ME Research UK does not pay for the indirect costs of research projects. Please see our Standard Grant Conditions for more information. In the UK, you may be eligible to receive top-up funding from the Government to cover these costs – from the Charity Research Support Fund in England, the Scottish Funding Council, the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales, or Higher Education Quality-related Research funding in Northern Ireland.

In England, research studies funded by us are automatically eligible for NHS support via the NIHR Clinical Research Network.
