Researcher at PC

The aim of the research proposals in this call should be to translate (move) basic science discoveries more quickly and effectively into cancer practice.

Projects can cover any aspect of technological development in the area of cancer.  

Projects should:

  • Be novel, addressing an unmet need in cancer healthcare or in applied medical research, or offer a new solution to a problem; or
  • Be based upon proof of principle and supported by experimental data; or
  • Move knowledge towards or result in a product, technology or intervention that’s ready for market development; or
  • Have a clear plan to develop a product, technology or intervention and move this towards an application in the patient setting.

We encourage applications that aim to benefit the cancers that are most prominent and significant to our regional population and encourage applications which aim to improve the early diagnosis of cancer.

Applicants may be from an academic or healthcare background.

Grants are awarded for up to three years with a maximum funding budget of up to £300,000.

All applications will undergo rigorous external peer and scientific review.

Closing time and date 5pm 7th October 2019.

Applications must be submitted in line with the underpinning research call guidance
