Research Innovation Fund
Pancreatic Cancer UK Research Innovation Fund – coming soon in 2018.
One of Pancreatic Cancer UK's contributions to tackling the issue of underfunding in pancreatic cancer research is in the form of the Research Innovation Fund.
The Fund is intended to spur creative and cutting edge ideas and approaches in pancreatic cancer, including repurposing those successful in other areas of cancer that have justifiable promise for pancreatic cancer.
This investment focuses on making the most impact on saving lives, with limited resources, and also our commitment to fund research that is truly innovative and of the highest quality.
Through the development of our Scientific Advisory Board which has membership drawn from leading scientists from across the world, we can be confident the research we fund is the best.
Researchers from outside the immediate field of pancreatic cancer but with innovative proposals relevant to our objectives are encouraged to apply, especially as part of a collaborative effort.
Information about the eligibility criteria for this round for future opportunities, will be provided in due course.
All potential applicants and their Host Institutions should ensure that they have reviewed Pancreatic Cancer UK’s “Terms and Conditions of Research Grants” (hereafter known as Terms and Conditions), which will set out the standard terms applicable to all research grants funded by Pancreatic Cancer UK. For further details, please contact the Research Team.
