Bowel & Cancer Research PhD Studentship Awards Launched

Posted 22 March 2013 in

Call for proposals

EU applicants only

Bowel & Cancer Research is launching a PhD studentship award of up to £75,000 over 3 years. Three awards will be made in November 2013.

Bowel & Cancer Research funds translational research pertaining to diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. For this round, funding for one studentship will be restricted to a project tackling ulcerative colitis and one to a project addressing colorectal cancer.

Support will be given to:

• Experimental medicine; studying human disease in human tissue

• Innovation; therapeutic, diagnostic or devices

• Trials; outcomes research

In general the charity does not fund work using experimental animals.

Because of the very strong link between B&CR and the National Centre for Bowel Research and Surgical Innovation, preference will be given to those applications that make some direct use of the facilities of the Centre or demonstrate a strong collaborative approach.

There is a one stage application process.
