Marie Curie Research Grants Scheme

The Marie Curie Research Grants Scheme aims to provide evidence to inform better quality end of life care.

Research to improve quality of care

The aim of the Marie Curie Research Grants Scheme is to provide evidence to inform better quality of care for those with advanced progressive life-limiting conditions which are likely to shorten their lives within the foreseeable future.

Marie Curie is spending £1 million each year to fund high quality research with the potential to improve end of life care for those with all terminal illnesses.
