£30 million boost for biomedical engineering research
Date:8/30/2012

The Wellcome Trust and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) announce the launch of a joint 30 million initiative to find biomedical engineering solutions to challenging healthcare problems.

The Innovative Engineering for Health partnership will provide funding for a limited number of ground-breaking long-term projects that address healthcare needs for which current solutions are inadequate. Up to 10m over seven years is available for each project, reflecting the scale of ambition that the initiative seeks to support. Uniquely, the initiative provides the resources and flexibility to both conduct high-quality basic research and enable its adoption into clinical or public health practice.

Engineering and the physical sciences have played a role in many of the most significant advances in healthcare in our time. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), fibre-optic surgical techniques, robotic prostheses and automated genetic sequencing are just some of the advances in healthcare that would not have been possible without technology from the physical sciences.

Applications are invited for projects that will address problems of the highest priority in healthcare or public health for which solutions are not obvious given the current state of technology. For example, priority will be given to proposals that address such problems as developing technologies to tackle rare diseases, facilitating care for babies and infants that accommodates challenges posed by growth and development, and finding engineering approaches for mental health problems.

The new initiative builds on the success of a 45m capacity-building initiative from the two funders to support four multidisciplinary centres of excellence in medical engineering around the UK.

The Minister for Universities and Science, David Willetts, said: "Bringing together the UK's world-class biomedical and physical sciences researchers will be vital in develo
