Cancer Research UK’s prevention and population awards now have a more holistic remit. It is now accepting innovative applications on classical, clinical and molecular epidemiological approaches to increase understanding of risk and disease aetiology.

It also welcomes applications for exploratory and confirmatory clinical trials seeking to test the efficacy and safety of preventative approaches (including behavioural, pharmacologic, immunologic and nutritional interventions). Policy-focused research on primary preventions including tobacco, obesity and physical activity are also now within scope. Cancer Research UK’s Prevention and Population Committee welcomes projects with clear consideration of line of sight and appropriate involvement of public and patient in its design and delivery. Get in touch with the Cancer Research UK’s office with your ideas.

There are two upcoming funding deadlines:

22 July 2021 – Prevention and Population Research Project Awards

23 September 2021 – Prevention and Population Research Programme Awards
