World Cancer Research Fund International: Regular Grant Program 2018

The World Cancer Research Fund International invites applications for its regular grant programme. This supports research on the link between diet, nutrition, body composition, physical activity, and cancer prevention and survival. These research areas may be approached by either identifying the mechanisms that underpin the effects of diet, nutrition and physical activity on cancer, or by addressing the risk factors that influence individual susceptibility to cancer development, progression and survival, contributing to the evidence on variability between people in outcomes.

Addressing the identification of likely causal links between diet, nutrition and physical activity after cancer diagnosis also applies for the cancer survivors research area.

Funding & Duration

Two types of grants are available:

  • investigator initiated grants, worth a maximum of £350,000 (approx. AUD $624,000) for up to four years;
