Funders create scheme to support early diagnosis of cancer

The charity Cancer Research UK and two UK research councils have teamed up to support research to help clinicians detect cancer earlier.

The Early Detection Innovation Sandpit and Award is an initiative supported by CRUK, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and the Science and Technology Facilities Council. 

The scheme is open to researchers, clinicians and health professionals. The call document encourages applications for researchers in the physical sciences who have access to technologies not previously used in cancer detection. Groups can include researchers at all stages of their career except PhD students and junior postdocs.
