EDAG funds policy relevant research or activities that are adding to the scientific evidence base to achieve earlier diagnosis and enable access to treatment.

Applications are accepted from UK-based researchers in universities, medical schools, hospitals, research institutions, as well as advocacy organisations, where there are appropriate academic links. Collaborations, including international ones, are encouraged.

EDAG provides project grants to support short term (18 months max) policy-relevant research that significantly add to the evidence base and have potential to impact earlier cancer diagnosis. We welcome proposals that use innovative, multidisciplinary and rapid approaches using pre-existing data sources (where necessary).
