Grant Opportunities: Nominations Open for Mental Health Award

Must read

Deadline: 7-Jun-23

Wellcome Trust is accepting nominations for Mental Health Award to support the validation of biological, psychological, social or digital markers to enable stratification in anxiety and/or depression as early as possible.

This work involves advancing scientific understanding of how brain, body and environment interact in the course and resolution of these conditions; finding new and improved ways to predict, identify, and stratify groups of people so that they can provide more timely and personalised interventions; and finding new and improved ways of intervening.
