Research grant - MRC


Assessment procedure

Your proposal will be peer reviewed by independent scientific experts from the UK and overseas.

Reviews are based around three core criteria:

  • importance: how important are the questions, or gaps in knowledge, that are being addressed?
  • scientific potential: what are the prospects for good scientific progress?
  • resources requested: are the funds requested essential for the work, and do the importance and scientific potential justify funding on the scale requested?

See more information on peer review at the MRC.
