The NNMHR has just been awarded a generous Small Grant* from the Wellcome Trust to enable us to continue supporting innovative and critical medical humanities research across the network.

We are delighted to announce that the first round of the NNMHR Seed Scheme is now open.

Applications are invited from researchers at any of the ten participating institutions (Durham, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan, Newcastle, Northumbria, Sheffield and York) for up to £1200 to support initiatives oriented towards the development of further large-scale medical humanities research projects. Funds can be used to pump-prime new research; organise workshops, meetings and seminars; visit archives or other research sites; undertake stakeholder engagement and consultation; and pilot new research methods or ideas.
