Our Research Grant Programme funds research on the effects of diet, nutrition, body composition and physical activity on cancer prevention and survival - and is an important part of our work to help achieve our vision of living in a world where no one develops a preventable cancer.
The research we fund as part of our Research Grant Programme, builds on and is informed by the scientific findings from our Continuous Update Project and Second Expert Report. In addition, the Research Grant Programme funds innovative research that focuses on our area of work: the link between diet, nutrition, body composition and physical activity on cancer prevention and survival.
Changes to the Regular Grant Programme
We are currently undertaking a comprehensive review of our Research Programme as part of a regular, periodic review to maintain our impact and remain competitive and innovative in the area of diet, nutrition, physical activity and cancer prevention and survival. We will also be focusing on the development and launch of our 2017 Continuous Update Project Report on cancer prevention.
Changes to the grant programme as a result of the review will be implemented in the July 2017 call.
