Pancreatic Cancer UK Future Leaders Fund

We are committed to attracting new research talent and retaining expertise within the field. Our Future Leaders Fund aims to build critical mass and support the research leaders of the future in both clinical and non-clinical disciplines. In 2017, we launched our new Future Leaders Academy which was supported by the Fund.

Pancreatic Cancer UK supports pancreatic cancer researchers of the future through two mechanisms: the Future Leaders Fund (details below), and also through co-funding with the MRC under its Clinical Research Training Fellowships scheme.

Application process

Applications are submitted under the leadership of a PhD supervisor, who will act as Principal Investigator and be responsible for the training, mentoring and development of the Future Leader for the duration of the PhD project.

Funding is available for fees and stipend, with up to £15,000 per year available for running costs including consumables, travel, dissemination, animal costs and equipment.
