The Medical Research Foundation and the Medical Research Council have launched a call to support research in Self-Harm and Eating Disorders within Children and Young Adults. This is a 2 year award.
A key aim of this call is to encourage researchers already working in associated areas or on other relevant clinical research to re-prioritise these topics and enable the exploitation of existing resources and cohorts to develop hypotheses exploring the underlying biology and psychology of either of these diverse mental health conditions. Associated areas would include other mental health, medical or addictive conditions, for example ADHD, depression or obesity, or important traits which can underpin these conditions including anxiety, impulsivity and compulsivity. However, the primary driver of submitted applications must be to better understand eating disorders or self-harm. Closing date for applications on 31st January 2017.
