Inspire and Innovate: Cancer Research UK funding opportunities for population research

Cancer Research UK (CRUK) is the world’s largest charitable funder of high quality research in preventing, diagnosing, and treating cancer. Our ambition is to accelerate progress to see three-quarters of people surviving the disease within the next 20 years. To this aim, we support over 4,000 researchers, doctors, and nurses across the UK and have delivered over £400 million in funding decisions in 2015-2016. CRUK has a diverse portfolio of research funding streams and awards to inspire new research ideas and catalyse multidisciplinary collaborations to drive forward research to beat cancer sooner. This session will showcase funding opportunities for population research in the areas of cancer prevention, early diagnosis, and classical epidemiology and cohort studies. In prevention, we are particularly interested in receiving applications from a variety of disciplines and career stages that focus on behavioural and lifestyle interventions to prevent cancer or cancer recurrence at individual or population level, adherence to chemoprevention and screening as a form of prevention. CRUK offers several funding award types and innovative new schemes that will be discussed here. The application process, examples of work that we fund, and top tips for researchers will also be covered.

Learning objectives:

  • Provide an overview of Cancer Research UK’s research strategy
  • To understand funding opportunities and processes for population research at CRUK
  • Helpful insight into what makes a good/successful research application
  • Opportunities for Q&A and to discuss funding opportunities
