Detall de la convocatòria


Objectiu de la convocatòria
The goal of the Worldwide Cancer Research (formerly known as AICR) is to support research that might in future help reduce the incidence of cancer or improve cancer survival. The grants support fundamental or translational research into the causes, mechanisms, diagnosis, treatment or prevention of cancer. This remit is usually interpreted conservatively.
WCR does not support clinical research, including clinical trials, patient care, nursing or healthcare delivery research. It also does not support other types of applied cancer research such as policy, public health or psychosocial research.
Proposals that contain a small clinical element as an essential part of a basic or translational research project are often permitted, but you are advised to contact Grant Round Manager, Lynn Turner ([email protected]) for advice before submitting your proposal.
