Research Innovation Fund

Research Innovation Fund

One of our contributions to tackling the issue of underfunding in pancreatic cancer research is in the form of the Research Innovation Fund.

RIF 2014 grants mapThe Fund aims to spur creative and cutting edge ideas and approaches in pancreatic cancer research, including those successful in other areas of cancer research that have justifiable promise for pancreatic cancer. We are committed to investing in research and making it a priority and as such are proud to announce our 2014 funding of nearly £0.5million has been awarded to researchers around the UK! 

Our RIF grants can be split into three areas of research: Early diagnosis projects, personalised treatment and impriving the chances of treatment success. Find out more about specific projects in each area by clicking the links below.
