The Trustees of the Human Milk Foundation are delighted to announce our second research grant call of up to £12,000.
We welcome applications from research groups in the UK working in the following key areas of our charity’s research strategy:
1) To investigate the evidence for the use of donor milk and how that impacts on infant health, maternal physical and mental health, and breastfeeding rates
2) To understand the composition and variability of human milk within and across individuals and populations, and how donor milk may be used as a therapeutic tool
3) To understand the health economic, psychosocial and environmental impacts of donor milk availability and use
4) To understand optimal procedures for the preparation and use of donor milk.
The BAPM Report in 2016 highlighted a list of key areas of research, which includes suggestions for research that fall within these four objectives.
Projects will be peer reviewed and formally selected by our Research Committee. They should be completed within 12 months.
