Clinical Pioneer Awards
The Clinical Pioneer Awards scheme is a new way of funding for Pancreatic Cancer UK. The scheme was set up because we wanted to have the flexibility to support research into issues and priority areas that affect patients and carers currently living with pancreatic cancer. We also wanted to support research into practical interventions to tackle early diagnosis.
The Clinical Pioneers Awards scheme is an opportunity for clinicians and non-clinicians, for example qualitative research academics or technology developers, who have innovative project ideas that are focused on interventions within clinical or community settings to improve diagnosis, treatment and care, quality of life, or experience for pancreatic cancer patients or carers to receive funding. The scheme addresses the fact that these types of projects may not traditionally attract funding through existing funding streams. It is hoped some of these interventions will also have an impact on patient outcomes.
