Research Summaries

These are the research projects that BDRF have funded.

If you’re thinking about starting your own project and would like to apply for a bursary, please see our how to apply page.

All of our work is reliant on fundraising – we get no financial support from the government.  If you would like to support our work we would be delighted if you would consider making a donation here.
