WCRF Grant Programme 

This year, WCRF’s grant programme is focusing on two main themes:

  • Identifying the mechanisms that underpin the effects of diet, nutrition and physical activity on cancer
  • Addressing the host factors that influence an individual’s susceptibility to cancer development or progression

For cancer survivors, we also encourage broader research into evidence for impact of diet, nutrition (including body composition), physical activity and outcomes after cancer diagnosis, as robust evidence on this is still lacking.

Investigator initiated grants are awarded to principal investigators with a maximum of £350,000 for up to four years, with a limit of £100,000 for any one year. Seed grants are for a maximum of £60,000 in total for up to two years.

Deadline: 7th October 2019
