Clinical Careers Committee
The Clinical Careers Committee has a broad remit to support clinicians and allied health professionals working in areas spanning basic and translational research.
For each of the funding schemes supported by the Clinical Careers Committee, projects are encouraged from any area of Cancer Research UK's funding remit, with the exception of drug discovery and clinical trials.
Pre-doctoral Research Bursaries provide short-term funding to allow clinicians and other health professionals to get involved in research projects early in their career.
Postdoctoral Research Bursaries for Clinical Trainees offer funding for clinical trainees to undertake a research project after completion of a PhD, during completion of their clinical specialty training.
The Clinician Scientist Fellowship offers excellent individuals the opportunity to develop their clinical academic research career.
The Advanced Clinician Scientist Fellowship offers excellent individuals the opportunity to develop an independent clinical academic research career.
How proposals are judged
The Clinical Careers Committee meets twice a year to assess applications. Applications are judged on the basis of scientific excellence, the research environment, candidate’s track record, and relevance of the research to the aims of Cancer Research UK
