The Cancer Research UK UCL Centre (CRUK UCL Centre) is part of a national network of 13 research centres funded by Cancer Research UK dedicated to delivering world-leading cancer research, improved care for cancer patients and greater local engagement.
Together with UCL, the CRUK UCL Centre has developed Translational Technology Platforms based at the Cancer Institute to provide the scientific infrastructure for cutting edge basic, translational and clinical cancer services to support cancer researchers at UCL.
The annual CRUK UCL Centre Development Fund provides short-term, pump-priming funding to support innovative research projects and inspirational, proof-of-concept cancer research. The scheme offers funds for up to five £20,000 awards per year.
The Centre’s Core Management Team can also provide strategic input and high-level support for new CRUK funding initiatives, such as the Centre Networks Accelerator Awards and CRUK priority research funding calls.
