Funding opportunities for early detection and diagnosis

We have a range of funding opportunities catering for a broad research community at all career stages and in any research field which can impact on earlier diagnosis of cancer.

Our funding covers early detection and early diagnosis and is designed to support a broad portfolio of research across the pipeline from discovery research to translational research and innovation whith has potential for a real population-level impact through policy or clinical practice.

Although the funding opportunities below are divided into early detection and early diagnosis, we recognise that these are overlapping categories. If you are unsure where your research would best fit, please contact our Research Funding Managers.


Research career development opportunities

Research Careers

We're committed to supporting the next generation of cancer researchers and we have opportunities for you wherever you are in your career, whether you're new to the lab or growing your fully fledged independent research group.

We have a broad range of fellowships, bursaries, job opportunities and studentships to cater for your situation, whether you're an academic researcher or a clinician scientist, and whether you require a fully funded fellowship or grants to advance individual projects.

Accelerator Award

Our Centres Network Accelerator Award encourages cross-institutional collaboration to accelerate translational research in fields including early detection and diagnosis. The award is open to our CRUK Centres and also to institutions affiliated to Italy's AIRC or invited by Spain's FC AECC.

The award is not intended to find solutions to specific research questions, but to provide the tools to enable the research community to develop the solutions. Any research findings generated should be limited to providing preliminary data, tools and/or other resources which can then be developed by investigators with their research-specific funding.
