Application process

The 2021 call for applications to University’s Cancer Research Fund is now open.

This fund is intended to help researchers with pump-priming grants or small items of equipment for projects concerned with cancer. Special weight is placed on proposals that increase the chances of future external funding from charities or research councils, and/or which involve collaborative research.

For this round, bids are invited for sums not greater than £5,000. You must be a University of Bristol member of academic staff to be eligible to apply. Early career researchers are especially encouraged to apply. 

The deadline for applications is Friday, 28 May 2021. Due to the COVID-19 situation we will be flexible with respect to project completion times, as we are aware that access to labs has been impacted. 

Enquries should be directed to Prof Ann Williams (School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine) in the first instance.

Signed electronic copies should be submitted to Prof Ann Williams by the deadline. The completed form must not exceed 2 sides of A4 in total. Results will be communicated by the end of July. 

An application form can be accessed via the Cancer Research Network's intranet (only accessible by UoB staff; go to Documents/University Cancer Research Fund and download the Word document. If you experience any difficulties, please contact Catherine Brown to have an e-copy sent to you).
