Event description
Briefing event for International Alliance for Cancer Early Detection (ACED) funding calls, Tues 5th November, 1.15-2.30pm, CRUK CI

About this Event

The Early Detection Programme will be hosting Dr David Crosby, Head of Early Detection Research and Nicole Lyons, ACED Programme Manager at Cancer Research UK for a briefing and Q&A on the upcoming funding calls from ACED (previously ICED).

These calls will be open from mid October, when full details will be made available:

• Pilot funding up to £200,000

• Project funding from £200,000 to £800,000 (expressions of interest invited)

• Training and skills development funding up to £50,000 for up to 4 months within Alliance Centres for travel and accommodation

All projects funded by the Alliance will involve at least two member Centres (UK-UK or UK-US), with an aim that at least 50% of projects will be transatlantic. A press release announcing ACED US partners is scheduled for mid October.

This is an open call but projects aligning with the core strategic themes of the Alliance will be prioritised. Please note that Pilot and Project grants are only open to Cambridge University PI/Group Leaders to apply, but the training and skills development grants are applicable for all levels of University researchers. David and Nicole will also be available from 2.30pm until 4pm on the 5th November for 1:1 meetings with researchers - please email ed@crukcambridgecentre.org.uk if you are interested in a slot to discuss your project ideas. If you are unable to attend in person you could alternatively schedule a phone call with David and Nicole during this time.
