Cancer Research UK are pleased to announce the launch of the Pioneer Award – a new funding scheme to support research into innovative, ground-breaking ideas relevant to cancer.
The Pioneer Award will provide grants of £200,000 over two years in support of high risk, high reward research projects that would be unlikely to gain funding through traditional mechanisms, and that have the potential to result in paradigm shifting progress.
We will fund high quality, novel research ideas, regardless of the applicant’s vocation, track record and publishing history. Applications will be considered all year round via a rapid funding process, culminating in a pitch to a newly formed Pioneer Award Committee of innovators and entrepreneurs. Find out more about Pioneer Award Committee and how to apply at cruk.org/pioneeraward.
