The French National Research Agency (ANR), and the General directorate for healthcare provision (DGOS - Ministry of social affairs and health), are jointly launching a call to support translational research for applications in health: PRTS.
PRTS will fund studies downstream of exploratory research supported by the ANR and upstream of clinical research supported by the DGOS.
The main goal of the PRTS programme is to promote and support collaborative projects at the interface between basic and clinical research. The results of the funded projects will generate hypotheses to be tested in clinical trials.
Other aims are:
This programme should eventually contribute to improve patient health care.
This call for proposals is open to all biological and medical fields. However, research on cancer, VHB/C and AIDS will not be considered in this call as they benefit from INCa and ANRS supports, respectively.
