How to apply for CRSU support

All enquiries from NIHR-funded researchers, and those applying for NIHR funding, are welcome.

Please email with a brief outline of your proposal and an indication of the methodological challenges you anticipate.

The team are happy to consider all enquiries and can provide support at differing levels of complexity.

Applications will be measured against the following criteria:

  • Degree of complexity suitable for CRSU support
  • Clinical importance to the NHS
  • Ability and capacity of the applicants to complete the work

You will receive an initial response to your email enquiry within one week, following which your request will be reviewed by the team and timely expert support allocated. Subsequent communication between CRSU and reviewers will normally by email and teleconference.
