Grants are available to non-UK applicants, but the team must include a UK 

The NC3Rs is seeking high-quality research proposals to address genuine 
technological challenges in preclinical imaging. This strategic call for 
funding supports the development of preclinical imaging to advance the 3Rs in 
the areas of:

Tracking cell fate and distribution
3D gene expression profiling
Imaging bioengineered tissues
Molecular imaging of biodistribution
Improving sensitivity and resolution
Phenotyping genetically modified mice

A total budget of up to £1M is available for high quality and innovative 

The strategic call follows a workshop, co-hosted with the Technology Strategy 
Board-funded Electronics, Sensors and Photonics Knowledge Transfer Network (ESP 
KTN) to bring together the preclinical imaging community with technology 
developers/manufacturers and other researchers from across sectors and 
disciplines. The workshop provided an open forum for dialogue and information 
exchange between these groups to identify opportunities to address these 
challenges. The funding call is designed to support the research and 
development ideas coming from the workshop.
