Let's Get Proof

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on February 20, 2024 in Research Funding

Let’s Get Proof is pleased to announce the Catalyst Grant for the best medical research proposal this summer.

Let’s Get Proof is a medical research crowdfunding platform looking to make medical research funding more transparent, inclusive, and ultimately impactful to budding researchers. This is achieved by showcasing research proposals and involving key stakeholders such as healthcare providers, patients, philanthropists, and members of the public. Let’s Get Proof encourages collaboration through public input, feedback, questions, and donations.

This prize looks to combine these aspects of crowdfunding and public review with a traditional granting system to catalyze an applicant's research career. Importantly, unlike a traditional grant, an applicant who does not win the prize can still move forward with their project with any money they have crowdfunded.

Applications open on March 1 and submissions close on May 31.

The full terms and conditions can be found as a downloadable PDF on this link, as well as on the Let's Get Proof platform.
