4 All submitted proposals must fall within NIHR Remit NIHR supports training in clinical and applied health research, including social care research. The proposal must have clear potential for benefitting patients and the public within 5 years of its completion (but recognising the training element of the research). The research can involve: patients; samples or data from patients; people who are not patients; populations; health technology assessment; or health services research. NIHR does not support basic research or work involving animals or their tissue.

5 NIHR Remit (2) If the work involves biomarkers: - research that tests whether application of new knowledge can improve treatment or patient outcomes, and has obvious potential benefit within 5 years, is within remit; This might include application of known biomarkers, or other prognostic factors, to refine and test novel therapeutic strategies. - research that aims only to elucidate mechanisms underpinning disease, or identify risk factors for disease or prognosis (including search for biomarkers) is out of remit. NIHR is also prepared to support research into medical education.

29 Assessment Applications are assessed on strength of : Candidate Research Proposal Training and Development Plan Environment / Supervision / Mentorship Value for Money Full assessment criteria are published in the applicant guidance notes

30 Assessment Full assessment criteria are published in the applicant guidance notes The criteria published are the very same (and the only) criteria we ask our review panel members to score your application against. Make sure all of the listed criteria are addressed – don’t leave any gaps or your scores will suffer.

31 Advice to Applicants The applicant: Demonstrate your trajectory / potential for research leadership Describe your research experience / awareness and commitment to research leadership as expansively as possible If you think you lack experience then get some – volunteer to help out on existing research and audits, posters, presentations etc Answer the questions that pertain to your career intentions carefully – these are not designed to catch you out but remember the purpose of the programme! Sell yourself and use the space provided

32 Advice to Applicants The research proposal: The proposal must be appropriate to level and carefully constructed with a clear hypothesis and achievable aims and objectives Your research MUST fit the NIHR remit and address important areas for the NHS The proposal should not be dependent on funding from other sources or other larger project receiving and maintaining funding Make sure to explain HOW you will proceed – if a panel member cannot determine inclusion criteria, recruitment approaches or sample sizes from your proposal they cannot approve your methodology

33 Advice to Applicants The Training and Development Plan: Remember that the purpose of the programme is to develop the research leaders of the future Tailor your plan – don’t just propose the generic programme offered by your host HEI Take the opportunity to address your weaknesses as well as the needs of the study with a view to your career development post-award If your proposal involves methods you are not familiar with then seek training in this area – but don’t be tokenistic

34 Advice to Applicants The Environment / Supervision / Mentorship: Base yourself strategically - the purpose of the award is to support your development and research career - there needs to be local scope and support for this Build a team of mentors/supervisors that can, between them, afford expert guidance on every aspect of your study Justify your choice of mentors/supervisors If applying for a doctoral fellowship then your supervisor must have good experience of supervision to completion AND the time to supervise you.

35 Advice to Applicants Value for money: NIHR personal awards do not have a maximum value Funding requests vary greatly as a result of varying salaries, approaches, and fields of study All costs must be justifiable and fully justified – research your options The total cost must represent and appropriate and reasonable price for what is being proposed and what will be gained

36 Common Mistakes “We will….” Your stated career intentions are not supported by the programme Your training and development plan is copied from your Post Doc brochure You have no idea why your sample size is X “My statistician said…..” Your required sample size is very (too) ambitious You have not considered the impact of unanticipated outcomes on related / dependent work streams You have not considered alternative approaches and analytical techniques Your supervisors have never supervised to completion before You haven’t contacted Professor Z for mentorship (do you even know who she is?!)

37 Advice Summary Understand the process – visit our website (www.nihrtcc.org.uk), read the guidance notes and talk to those with experiencewww.nihrtcc.org.uk Give yourself enough time – to be fair to those that meet deadlines, we reject applications from those that don’t You WILL need input from your department, supervisors, mentors and finance office – allow for sickness, competing priorities and overseas holidays Have your application speed and/or proof read if possible - can the reader describe your methodology? Seek help – Supervisors, the RDS, your Local Research Office etc. Arrange internal peer reviews, mock panels and interviews.
