The Novo Nordisk UK Research Foundation supports research and education in diabetes. The Foundation funds research fellowships for up to 3 years which are available to physicians and nurses and small research project grants. We also support clinical projects and education for health care professionals allied to medicine. All awards are competitive and applications are assessed by independent selection committees. Funding rounds open in the Autumn each year and close in April. The application process is simple. The Foundation is funded solely by Novo Nordisk Ltd but is run but an independent Board of Trustees.
