Applications are Invited for the New Round of Worldwide Cancer Research Grants
Each grant can be up to 200K British Pounds.
Worldwide Cancer Research, an independent charity supporting international research into the causes and prevention of all types of cancer, will be accepting proposals for a new round of Project Grants towards the end of March.
The Project Grants are intended to support basic or translational research into the causes, mechanisms, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer with the aim of producing scientific research that may, in the future, help reduce the incidence of cancer or improve cancer survival. Applications should be for discrete, hypothesis-driven projects, achievable within the duration of the support requested. Clinical research projects are not eligible for support but proposals that contain a small clinical element as an essential part of a basic or translational research project can be permitted (applicants should contact Worldwide Cancer Research for advice before applying).
The maximum award is £250,000 to fund projects over a period of between one to three years (although applicants should note that most three-year grants have a maximum budget of around £200,000). Eligible applicants are PhD-qualified Principal Investigators with at least three years’ postdoctoral research experience (or a similar level of qualification and experience), who are employed at recognised, non-profit research institutions anywhere in the world.
Proposals should be submitted via the Worldwide Cancer Research online application system, which will be open for applications from 22 March 2017 until the deadline of 21 April 2017.
