The Medical Research Council (MRC) has recently put out a call, titled, ‘Capital investment in human tissue banking and linked data, in partnership with charities.’ Through this call, the MRC will support the establishment of a focussed number of world-class human tissue banks and associated linked-data repositories, which will work in close partnership with research charities to enable new avenues of research into disease mechanism, diagnosis and treatment.
If you are interested in applying for the above call, we would like to suggest that you begin thinking about the structure and constitution of your initiative, and any potential partners you may work with. There may be an opportunity for coordination of effort, partnership and collaboration between applicants.
We are very happy to engage with you, and to support where we are able, however, it is important for applicants to have a clear plan for what they would like to achieve and the type of support (and its duration) they are hoping to secure through this call. Some limited funding may be made available as part of our eventual support, but the more likely scenario is that we will help support your strategic case.
We would like to encourage you to think of others with similar assets or plans for developing collections to talk with one another. We have limited capacity to help directly with this, though we may be able to offer some limited guidance. We hope you understand that while we are not in a position to play a central coordinating role, we are happy to host a discussion sharing session for those interested.
For those interested, please respond to Carol Peacock (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we will look at arranging a telephone discussion in mid-March.
