GOSH Children's Charity and LifeArc Translational Research Accelerator Grants

CLOSED: £1 Million translational research accelerator grants available to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and ICH staff


Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity and LifeArc are providing a funding scheme to support translational research at GOSH focused on addressing medical needs for patients with rare diseases.

Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) Children’s Charity’s mission is to enhance GOSH’s ability to transform the health and wellbeing of children and young people, giving them the best chance to fulfil their potential. This year we are delighted to announce that we are partnering with LifeArc.

LifeArc is a medical research charity with a 25-year legacy of helping scientists and organisations turn their research into treatments and diagnostics for patients. The charity along with its research scientists brings together a network of partners to tackle specific diseases. So far, LifeArc’s work has helped to develop four marketed drugs (Keytruda®, Actemra®, Tysabri® and Entyvio®) and a test for resistance to carbapenems. Through the income generated from these drugs, LifeArc can directly fund academic and early stage research. LifeArc has a long history of providing translation and technology transfer services and brings exceptional expertise which can support the development of translational research projects.
