Some studies may require Royal Papworth NHS Hospital Foundation Trust to be the sponsor, if you would like further information regarding this please contact one of our Clinical Project Managers.

If a study has no third party sponsor, the Trust will usually act as a sponsor for research where:

  • The research involves any Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust resources, staff or patients
  • The Chief Investigator (CI) is a substantive employee of Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
  • The Chief Investigator (CI) holds an honorary contract with Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and a substantive employment contract with the University of Cambridge.

A Sponsorship Responsibility Agreements form can be found here.

Our standard operating procedure for applying for sponsorship approval can be found here

If you would like to find out more about Royal Papworth Hospital sponsored studies and commercial studies please contact Sophie Jackson

Grant applications
If you are applying for a grant for a research study the R&D team, in conjunction with the investigator, will cost the study to ensure that the funding covers all costs for the Trust. We would like to be involved early in the process to help prepare the costing requirements for non-commercial studies.

Please contact one of our Clinical Project Managers to discuss grant applications.
