Population Award

This scheme is currently closed.

This scheme aims to catalyse population-scale research aligned to the strategic goals of our College Research Themes.

Population Awards were introduced in ISSF2 and generated significant interest and a large number of high quality applications. ISSF3 will continue to support population-focused research via this scheme, increasing the level of funding available for researchers with the aim of enhancing scale and ambition of research applications and likely success of external applications based on outcomes from ISSF3 awards.

The Population Award will fund exciting and innovative projects focused on populations and big data, and which have the potential to significantly advance discovery in population and public health research.

Awards must be led by a researcher based in the College of Biomedical and Life Sciences, but inclusion of applicants from other Colleges at Cardiff University and / or from other external collaborating Institutions (eg, our GW4 partners) will be viewed positively.

We plan to identify all children diagnosed with ADHD in Wales, then electronically track their outcomes using routine data from this population dataset to identify predictors of poor outcomes.”
