The deadline for applications for the CRUK Oxford Development Fund has been extended to the 20th November.

The aim of the Development fund is to provide short-term, pump-priming funds to support innovative, proof-of-concept cancer research. Often the projects we support are in too early of a stage to be competitive for major research support but have the potential to be with just a small amount of investment.

Priority is given to projects with a clear translational trajectory, to early career researchers and for new collaborations between investigators.

Both small (requests not exceeding £7,500) and main (requests not exceeding £15,000) awards are available. Each are for a period of 12 months, starting on 1st April 2024, and running until 31st March 2025.

Please keep this in mind as you prepare your application, and any impact this may have on costings / timings of your project.
