The Accelerator Award enables translational research by funding cross-institutional teams to produce tools, platforms and resources which will transform the research landscape.
The purpose of the Accelerator Award is to enable progress in translational cancer research through the development of tools, platforms and skills that form the foundations of such research. We fund ambitious programmes which typically have multiple strands. These may include:
- Producing datasets, tissue banks, cell lines or models
- Developing methods, protocols, software and standards
- Training, skills and knowledge sharing
Cancer is a global health issue, which is why we partnered with AIRC and FC AECC, the principal cancer research charities in Spain and Italy. Our Accelerator Award is helping researchers share skills and resources for maximum patient benefit across borders.
