Leading hair loss
charity, Alopecia UK is offering two separate grants of up to £10,000 each to winners of their Research Pots.
Pot 1 is known as ‘The Committee’s Choice’ as the winner will be selected by the charity's Research Committee, whilst Pot 2 is titled ‘The Patients’ Choice’. This will be chosen by people with alopecia who will vote on a shortlist of up to three applicants' projects, as nominated by the Research Committee. The winner will be the project with the most votes.
These will be awarded to the people considered the best candidates for furthering understanding of the enigmatic autoimmune disorders Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis
. All three cause hairloss in varying degrees of severity to the scalp, head or from head to toe and, whilst no MHRA-licensed or FDA approved options are available for any of these conditions, Alopecia Areata treatment
is available for mildest form which affects the scalp only.
Applications must be received by Monday 20th August 2018 using a specific form which can be downloaded from the Alopecia UK website
. Anyone unable to download the form or visit the website for more information can contact Alopecia UK directly either via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 0800 101 7025.
