This aims to develop innovative and ground breaking new technologies in the biomedical area. Projects must address an unmet need in healthcare or applied medical research with a demonstrated proof of principle supported by experimental data. The trust is particularly keen to receive proposals in novel biomedicine that seek to restore function to the body. However, projects covering any aspect of technology development from a range of disciplines, including physical, computational and life sciences, will be considered.
The scheme provides financial support to individuals and organisations running physics-based events and activities in the UK and Ireland. The aim is to encourage and support the development of projects that:
- stimulate interest, excitement and debate about biomedical science or the history of medicine;
- support formal and informal learning;
- reach audiences of all ages and from all walks of life, and inform, inspire and involve them;
