The Cancer Research Society and Worldwide Cancer Research (WCR) Collaboration

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on February 20, 2024 in Research Funding

The Cancer Research Society (CRS) is proud to announce its first international partnership with the British charitable organization Worldwide Cancer Research (WCR). This collaboration, as part of WCR's 2024 grant competition, aims to support exploratory and translational research projects in cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. One project led by researchers in Canada and selected under this call for proposals will receive co-funding from CRS and WCR, for £200,000 ($340,000 CND), over three years.

This is an exceptional opportunity for Canadian researchers to receive financial support on an international level!

This major partnership reinforces the shared commitment of both organizations to support innovative research to outsmart cancer.

Applicants are advised to register in the Worldwide Cancer Research portal early and allow plenty of time to submit their grant application.

Interested applicants should contact immediately.
