BIRAX (the Britain Israel Research and Academic Exchange Partnership) is a £multi-million initiative of the British Council and the British Embassy in Israel together with the Pears Foundation, investing in world-leading research jointly undertaken by scientists in Britain and Israel.
We are proud to publish the second call for proposals under BIRAX Ageing. The first call, published in 2018, has awarded seven research projects focusing on the interplay of ageing and cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's and neurodegenerative disease, diabetes and bone fragility and macular disease, at a total cost of £2.8m.
We invite research proposals submitted jointly by British and Israeli scientists seeking to further our understanding of ageing and its impact on human health. We are interested in projects that use pioneering techniques, state of the art technologies and that showcase the added value of the synergy between the collaborating labs.
