World Cancer Research Fund International – research grants

The World Cancer Research Fund International invites applications for its regular grant programme.

This supports research on the link between diet, nutrition, body composition, physical activity, and cancer prevention and survival. These research areas may be approached by either identifying the mechanisms that underpin the effects of diet, nutrition and physical activity on cancer, or by addressing the risk factors that influence individual susceptibility to cancer development, progression and survival, contributing to the evidence on variability between people in outcomes. Two types of grants are available:

  • investigator initiated grants, worth a maximum of £350,000 for up to four years;
  • seed grants worth up to £60,000 over two years.

Grants are awarded to principal investigators based at institutions in any country outside the Americas. International collaborations and applications from low- and middle-income countries are particularly encouraged.

Deadline: 16th November 2020
