World Cancer Research Fund International: Research Grant

  Tuesday, 16 Nov 2021 | Funding Deadline

World Cancer Research Fund International funds vital projects into the effects of diet, nutrition (including body composition) and physical activity on cancer prevention and survival. The research grant programme groups research into two themes – cancer prevention and cancer survivors. Each of these areas may be addressed either from the perspective of identifying the mechanisms that underpin the effect of diet, nutrition and physical activity on cancer, or by addressing the host factors that influence individual susceptibility to cancer development or progression, and so contribute to explaining variability between people in outcomes. For cancer survivors, they also encourage broader research into evidence for impact of diet, nutrition (including body composition), physical activity and outcomes after cancer diagnosis, as robust evidence on this is still lacking.

 

Deadline for proposals: 16 November 2021
