Funding

CRUK can propel promising research to the next stage by helping scientists access appropriate translational funding and 'in-kind' support. In 2016/17, we leveraged £29m in industry and external grant support for CRUK researchers.

  • CRUK FUNDING

    CRUK funds a broad portfolio of investigator-led research, from individual projects and fellowships to large-scale team science programmes, multidisciplinary collaborations and international consortia.

    Our Translation Team can provide support for researchers applying for a Cancer Research UK drug discovery project grant. The Therapeutic Drug Discovery Awards support hypothesis-driven research with a clear line of sight to the clinic. The purpose of these awards is to develop a therapy or therapeutic agent which will lead to significant patient benefit. Applications are assessed initially by an Expert Review Panel and then by the Discovery Research Committee.

    The Translation Team work with all CRUK grant-holders to support the translation of research outputs towards clinical application, to help deliver benefits to people affected by cancer.

  • PROJECT DEVELOPMENT FUND

    CRUK believes that rapid access to ‘kick-start’ or bridging funding is sometimes required by projects in order for them to progress to the next stage, where they may attract further substantial funding or partnering interest. Through the Project Development Fund, limited sums can be granted to projects to help bridge this gap.

    In order to qualify, proposals should have a clearly defined end point which is achievable in the short to medium term. Proposals are not restricted by type but must be consistent with CRUK’s vision and purpose.
