Research funding and support

As a researcher at Uppsala University, you can get support regarding research funding.

At the Research Support Unit at the Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacy, we can help you apply for, administer and report your research grants. We also act as a link between researchers and management for those issues that require prioritisation and decisions at the management level.

Read more about Swedish and international research funding in Uppsala University's Research Handbook.

Under the heading Additional support below, you will find information about Medfarm’s infrastructures, registration of clinical studies and career support.

Additional support

Uppsala University Research Handbook

In addition to information about research funding, the University’s research handbook presents other information that could be useful for you as a researcher, e.g. research data management and research ethics and good research practice. It also describes other matters to consider when you plan your project and when your project has been granted funding.


As a researcher at the Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacy, you have access to advanced infrastructures that are supported by the Disciplinary Domain.

You can also use the national infrastructures at SciLifeLab.

Registration of clinical trials

From 31 January 2023, an EU-wide regulation on clinical trials on medicinal products for human use applies. After this date, all new applications for clinical trials on medicinal products must be submitted according to the regulation. The application is submitted through the web portal CTIS. The review process is EU-common but will result in a national decision. More information can be found on UCR's website (in Swedish) or the Swedish Medical Products Agency's website.

Career support

On the Staff Portal, you can find information about career development and academic skills and development. There is also a programme with workshops and seminars on career and leadership and a list of networks you can use to exchange professional contacts.

You can also contact the Unit for career and leadership in academia.
