We are able to provide some assistance with preparation of grant applications for collaborative, multi-disciplinary research proposals involving at least two of the research groups participating in the Stirling Behavioural Medicine Research Group (see Research tab). In order to achieve our aim of gaining significant funding, this assistance will be targeted at moderate to large scale projects (more than £250,000). Once the proposed PPI group is established, we hope to also be able to offer help or advice on patient and public involvement.
