The Wellcome Trust/DBT India Alliance launches new financing programmes to tackle India’s health issues through collaborative research and also by building clinical research capacity.
Together with the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India and Wellcome Trust, UK, renewing this partnership for another 5 years, India Alliance has entered a fresh phase of financing from April 2019. This enables India Alliance to amplify its efforts beyond providing individual fellowships at different career stages to basic biomedical, clinical, and public health researchers, which it’s done for ten years. We now bring three new initiatives: Team Science Grants, Clinical/Public Health Research Centres, and Clinical Research Training Programme.
Team Science Grants (TSG)
Team Science Grants will fund a team of researchers who bring together complementary skills, knowledge, and resources to address an important health challenge for India. These grants will also fund high-risk, high-reward research work.
