Fellowships and Training Grants
Fellowships and Training Grants provide support for investigators early in their careers, particularly for those establishing a research group for the first time. Fellowships will provide the salary of the Principal Investigator.
The purpose of these awards is to help students attend scientific meetings that are relevant to cancer research.
This Fellowship supports outstanding scientists at the start of their independent careers. The Fellowship provides the opportunity to set up an independent research group for the first time.
Career Establishment Awards provide five years of funding to enable new investigators who have just taken up their first Higher Education Funding Council funded post at a UK university to establish their own research group. This award is open to both non-clinical researchers and clinician-scientists.
The Clinician Scientist Fellowship provides four years' support for clinical researchers who wish to develop their research skills and make the transition from doctoral research training to an independent clinical-academic investigator.
The Senior Cancer Research Fellowship provides an opportunity for outstanding scientists to establish or to further develop an independent research group. The Fellowship is open to both non-clinical researchers and clinician-scientists.
This scheme aims to encourage clinicians and those in related professions (e.g. nursing, etc.) to undertake short periods of research in order to enhance the understanding between the research and clinical communities.
