CRUK Imperial Centre Development Fund

Developing research at the convergence of the life, clinical, engineering and physical sciences is the key focus of the CRUK Imperial Centre. With two broad themes – Reducing the Burden of Cancer and Increasing the Precision of Cancer Treatments – the mission of the CRUK Centre is to develop novel technologies and methodologies that address challenges in the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer.

The CRUK Centre has an annual Development Fund of £100k to support the early development of novel collaborative projects. The intention is to provide seed funding to develop the preliminary data required to build a more substantive project that could attract funding from external sources, including, but not limited to the following CRUK funding streams:

  • Pioneer Award
  • Multidisciplinary Project Award
  • Early Detection Project Award
