Peter Duffy founded Muscle Owl, an online media and campaigns channel dedicated to changing attitudes towards disability, in 2014. He has a unique insight into this issue: his brother, Andrew, has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and he has worked for Muscular Dystrophy UK, which has given him experience and contacts in the sector. Although Muscle Owl has already produced over 50 podcast episodes, it has never received any funding. Peter and his co-editor Michaela would like to develop and raise awareness of the organisation, allowing it to reach more people and offer more diverse and informative material.
Mum of three Sophia Parker believes that it takes a village to raise a child and set up Little Village in early 2016 to support to local families in need. It uses a model similar to a foodbank, providing clothes, toys and equipment for children aged 0-5. Sophia is an experienced social policy professional, and completed a Clore Fellowship in 2015. She would like to use her professional skills to evolve the Little Village offer, developing the model, expanding into other areas and growing its network of volunteers to create small, warm communities of families supporting each other.

Supporting young people to make change happen 07 Nov 2016
UpRising is a youth leadership charity opening pathways to power for talented young people from diverse and under-represented backgrounds. The grant was for increasing the central capacity in preparation for further growth in reach, rolling out of the ‘Find Your Power’ programme and social franchising of the model.
IPPR will work with local authorities and other actors in three areas to co-produce strategies to shore up resilience. IPPR will carry out a community research programme aimed at gaining a deep understanding of the dynamics that drive local concerns about migration in these areas and which factors enable or block the process of integration for migrants. IPPR will work with local actors to map key assets within the local community that can be mobilised by local policymakers, and will co-host a series of deliberative workshops with residents aimed at engaging local actors to build strategies that can have local support. Finally, IPPR will provide sources of good international and domestic practice, and will give them access to an exchange network to enable them to share experience and learn from others facing similar challenges, including via a trans-Atlantic learning exchange with the ‘Welcoming Cities’ programme in the US.
Geese Theatre Company will deliver 3 years of activity developing each participants theatrical and personal skills, with the aim of raising self-esteem and confidence, increasing well-being and motivation to change. Every year, the ensemble will present their work at Birmingham Repertory Theatre and in community spaces reaching a wide audience of friends, peers and professionals.
Breaking the Sound Barriers 07 Nov 2016
Attitude is Everything supports the music industry to improve deaf and disabled people's access at music venues and festivals. This grant enables the organisation to develop and expand its programmes, increasing its evidence base and ability to influence the industry and policy. Attitude is Everything will grow and diversify its team of 'Mystery Shoppers' who rate music events for accessibility, increase relationships with smaller and grassroots venues and increase sign ups to its 'Charter Programme' which recognises good practice around arts access.
Over 3 years, Imagineer, their partners and 40 practitioners will work with 450 children and 30 teachers and senior leaders in 15 Coventry primary schools. The Imagineerium, is both a ‘maker space’ within the Daimler Powerhouse and a teaching approach, which creates an engaging dramatic frame and motivating real-world context for children’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) learning. Costumed Imagineers will commission the children to design and prototype mechanical milestones for a new city-wide cycle trail to celebrate Coventry’s history of bicycle manufacture.
Northern Guardianship Programme 28 Nov 2016
GMIAU will co-design an advocacy service model with unaccompanied migrant children and young people and with service providers in Manchester and Sheffield. This will involve a comprehensive mapping exercise of services in these cities, primary research with young people and service providers, and a learning exchange with organisations that developed a similar model in Scotland. They will produce a report and options paper, which will be disseminated via a national conference.
CKB is a blood-based prospective study of 512,000 adults, recruited during 2004-8 from 10 diverse regions of China, with extensive data collected at baseline and subsequent resurveys using questionnaires, physical measurements, and stored biological samples. By 1.1.2014, 25,000 deaths and ~1.5M coded disease events had been recorded among participants, through linkages with death and disease registries and national health insurance systems. Genome-wide data are being generated (first phase: ~100,000 participants by Q3/2016), along with blood biochemistry and multi-omics data for nested case-control studies of specific diseases. We are seeking renewal of two-year funding to support core activities to maintain, enhance and share the resource through: (i) continued follow-up of cause-specific morbidity and mortality and hospital records through electronic linkage to health insurance systems; (ii) validation, clinical adjudication and detailed sub-phenotyping for selected diseases (e.g. stroke, IHD, cancer); (iii) maintenance and management of extensive and uniquely large and complex datasets; (iv) enhancement of collaboration and data sharing with the wider scientific community; and (v) maintenance and development of administrative and technological systems underpinning the infrastructure, sample storage and resurvey. The CKB resource will improve our understanding of disease aetiology, risk prediction and development of new therapies, and should benefit populations worldwide.
The Institute Presents: Theater of the Mind 16 Mar 2016
The Institute invites visitors to viscerally experience how our brains construct the world, through a highly engaging sequence of cognitive neuroscience experiments created in collaboration with neuroscience labs around the world. Part science lab in action, part exhibition theater, Theater of the Mind will generate the largest, most diverse set of data our partner labs have ever had access to. We are enlightening an audience through true engagement, while also furthering scientific research. The exhibition, presented in three acts, sends visitors on a "mission" that parallels both science and the arts in their mutual search for underlying conceptual narratives. The project’s theatrical format and structure is a metaphor for how the unconscious mind is the unheralded producer in our "mental theater". Act I: Senses—In the first part, we will see how our brains quickly and efficiently construct an image of the world that works for us that is not 100% accurate, in the objective sense, but given our neural resources, it works beautifully for most of our purposes. Act II: Cognition—In the second part, visitors will experience how we mostly unconsciously process that information; how easily The Institute can alter our attention, affect our memories, and demonstrate the significantly unconscious nature of many of our supposedly conscious actions with implications for the assumption of free will. Act III:Society—In the third section, visitors will see how these biases mirror how we relate to other people—our social interactions are similar to our perceptual and cognitive constructions.
We know surprisingly little about the basic logic, topology or origins of eukaryotic cell architecture even though such an understanding is fundamental to most biomedical research. Until recently, the proteins responsible for shaping eukaryotic cells (including Actin/Tubulin/coatamers/ESCRTIII) were thought to be unique to eukaryotes. This changed with the discovery of close homologues in TACK/Loki-family archaea. Despite the important part played by these proteins during eukaryogenesis, we know little about their functions in the context of archaea. To determine how these cytoskeletal systems with origins in archaea contributed to the emergence of internal compartments that define eukaryotes, our team will use metagenomic sampling and phylogenomics to trace their evolutionary history, and a combination of approaches, including live super-resolution microscopy and electron tomography to carry out a comparative analysis of their ultrastructure, dynamics and function in both archaea and eukaryotes. Ultimately, we expect this evolutionary cell biological analysis to make a start towards an understanding of archaeal cell biology, to reveal the likely path of eukaryogenesis, and to reveal underlying principles of eukaryotic cell biology that so far have eluded us. In doing so, we expect this fundamental research to have a signficant impact in the future on human health and disease.
