Wellbeing of Women-Scottish Government Research Project Grants: Endometriosis Research

Support independent researchers leading their own work in Scotland.


Closes: 1 pm on 30 June 2022

Co-funded by

These awards jointly funded by Wellbeing of Women and the Scottish Government are for projects in laboratory, health and translational research that aims to improve access for women to appropriate support, diagnosis and the best treatment for endometriosis.

We are particularly encouraging applications in one of the following priority themes:

  • Can a cure be developed for endometriosis?
  • Is it possible to develop a non-invasive screening tool to aid the diagnosis of endometriosis?
  • What is the most effective way of managing the emotional and/or psychological and/or fatigue impact of living with endometriosis (including medical, non-medical and self-management methods)?

Applications for joint funding must be from lead applicants with tenured posts at recognised Scottish Universities or NHS Boards. Named academic/clinical collaborators will be permitted from outside Scotland, but the lead applicant must be a salaried member of staff at a Scottish University or NHS Board.

The upper grant award limit for these grants is £250,000 in total over one to three years. The total amount available under the joint 2022 funding call for awards is £250,000.

Wellbeing of Women supports collaborative research projects, especially between academic and industry researchers, although the contracted grant (and associated funding arrangements) will be with the lead applicant's institution. Collaborations with industry are not restricted to Scotland-based companies. Named academic/clinical collaborators are permitted from outside Scotland, but the lead applicant must be based in Scotland.
