Information for Researchers

We are pleased to announce that the AAIR Charity will consider applications for grants to support research projects or purchase equipment. Applications for this round should be submitted by Friday 15th April 2016, 1700 hours.

Grants for research and equipment
AAIR supports research into asthma, allergy and respiratory diseases primarily within the Faculty of Medicine, University of Southampton.  Allergy research primarily, but not exclusively focuses on airway effects. AAIR does not provide grants for research into smoking related diseases.  It particularly aims to pump prime research, and to support researchers in the early phases of their career. AAIR typically funds research projects or equipment costing less than 10K but the Trustees will consider applications for larger amounts in exceptional circumstances. The Trustees encourage joint funding from other sources.
