Medical Research

We fund medical research charities who are supporting research projects in Scotland. We also provide grants to Universities directly through our seedcorn grants. The  researchers we support are creating a better future for children and adults affected by neurological conditions or visual impairment. We are interested in research that looks into the causes, prevention and management of conditions.

We look to support departments and teams in Scotland who have a track record of delivering excellent research, and we are committed to investing in young researchers, new ideas and innovative approaches.

Funding is also available for charities that provide care and welfare for people living with visual impairment and neurological conditions.
