Description of the contract

Applications are sought for clinical studies which aim to establish the clinical efficacy of novel interventions or tests and their potential to diagnose, investigate or slow the progression of organ specific fibrosis.

However, the formation of superficial surgical scarring is excluded from this call. Whilst the main part of an application should be focused on a clinical efficacy study applicants are also encouraged to consider opportunities for the evaluation of mechanisms.
