The World Cancer Research Fund International: Inviting applications for Research grant for the funding theme- a) cancer prevention; and b) cancer survivors;

Donor Name:  The World Cancer Research Fund International
Funding name: Research grant

Funding brief:  The grant programme groups research into two themes – cancer prevention and cancer survivors. Each of these areas may be addressed either from the perspective of identifying the mechanisms that underpin the effect of diet, nutrition and physical activity on cancer, or by addressing the host factors that influence individual susceptibility to cancer development or progression, and so contribute to explaining variability between people in outcomes.

For cancer survivors, they also encourage broader research into causal links between diet, nutrition (including body composition), physical activity and outcomes after cancer diagnosis, as robust evidence on this is still lacking.

Deadline: 6th, October, 2017, 5pm UK time (BST)
Full proposal submission deadline: 9th, February, 2018

Funding limit: The Regular Grant Programme comprises two main grant types:
● Investigator initiated grants: Investigator Initiated Grants (IIGs) are awarded to Principal Investigators for a maximum of £350,000 for up to four years, with a limit of £100,000 for any one year.
● Pilot grants: Pilot Grants (PGs) are intended as start-up funds for pilot research to allow the development of innovative ideas, new methodologies and new research tools relevant to our Research Themes. This will allow researchers to collect preliminary data or test study parameters to take them to a stage where an application for an IIG would be appropriate. Pilot grants could also study behavioral change. Please note that there is a one stage only application (outline stage) for pilot grants (see section 6). Applicants need to be clear and explicit regarding the purpose of the Pilot Grant research study, in particular what specific aspects are being studied (eg feasibility, preliminary data for power calculations, the development of new methodologies, development of research tools, behavioral change, etc) and what the next expected research steps would be after completion of the grant. These grants are for a maximum of £60,000 in total for up to two years.

Special Notes: Please contact with the donor directly for further clarification and understanding.
