Future Solutions In Progress

The HIC Fund Portfolio

The HIC Fund is a joint venture between Department of Health (DH) and Wellcome Trust (WT). It is managed by the Joint Secretariat, which comprises representatives of DH and WT. The Central Commissioning Facility (CCF) manages the HIC Fund on behalf of DH

To date, HIC Fund has launched 5 thematic calls and 5 rounds of special interest topics:

Theme 1: Advancing Genetic Discoveries Into Clinical Practice

The first thematic call focussed on projects aimed at bridging the gap between the current understanding of genetic variation on disease susceptibility (basic knowledge) and clinical practice.
