The Sir Jules Thorn Charitable Trust’s infrastructure funding scheme is fully focused on translational research
- The fund will not normally support replacement of equipment used in routine research activities.
- The excellence and novelty of the research underpinning the application is a primary concern.
- All applications must be within translational research.
- Coordinate with your research office; only one application per calendar year per institution is allowed.
In 1964, businessman Jules Thorn set up a grant-making trust for medical research. Today, the Sir Jules Thorn Charitable Trust runs several schemes, including equipment grants under its Research Infrastructure Fund.
