Cancer Research UK – Early Detection Project

Cancer Research UK invites applications for its early detection project award. This supports research projects that drive forward a transformational change in how and when early cancers and pre-cancerous states are detected. Projects should aim to identify cancer or pre-cancerous states at the earliest possible point at which intervention might be made. This may include study of signals that detect or underpin prognosis, stratification or prediction of response to therapy and prevention. Applications may focus on any of the following areas:

  • biological research underpinning early detection and biomarker discovery and validation;
  • human based EDx discovery research;
  • epidemiology and risk stratification for EDx;
  • data and computation-driven approaches to EDx;
  • development and utlisation of preclinical EDx model systems;
  • EDx technology development;
  • translational and clinical EDx research.

Scientists, clinicians and healthcare workers in UK universities, medical school, hospitals, CRUK institutes and other research institutions who have at least three years of postdoctoral experience or equivalent may apply. Multi-institutional proposals are welcome and international and commercial organisations may be included as co-applicants or collaborators.

Awards are worth up to £500,000 each for up to three years, or four years when funding a PhD. Funding may be used for postdoctoral researchers, PhD students, technical staff, associated running expenses and equipment.

Deadline: 28th November 2019.
