CRUK Oxford Symposium – Event


The 4th Annual Cancer Research UK (CRUK) symposium has been arranged, giving opportunity to showcase the breadth of activity across the Centre in Oxford, and highlight the cross-departmental or interdisciplinary partnerships supporting translational cancer research. Speakers will showcase their collaborative research in Oxford across a range of cancer related paired talks, making it a valuable day for all involved.

The Symposium is an ideal venue to network, and often sparks new opportunities for partnership. It provides a platform to highlight younger scientists through poster competitions, alongside presentations from Centre-funded students.

Registration for the Centre’s Annual Symposium is exclusive to Centre members, and registration for tickets, which includes access to the evening reception, is free. To participate in the day, 300 word Abstracts are requested covering Research background, methods, results, conclusions, acknowledgment of sources of funding or any conflicts of interest.

Date: 5th June 2015
Time: All Day
Location: Mathematical Institute – Oxford

Cancer Research UK (CRUK) Multidisciplinary Project Award

This call is for multidisciplinary research projects that involve both cancer researchers and scientists from engineering and physical science disciplines, where the aim is to generate original research ideas and explore their applicability in cancer research.

Up to £500k can be requested to support a project over a period of up to 4 years.

Applications should ideally include:

  • a minimum of two PIs working in distinct scientific disciplines
  • at least one PI working in cancer research at any career stage
  • at least one PI from an engineering/physical science discipline at any career stage

With a primary focus on multidisciplinary research, the research themes within remit for this award include:

  • The direct application of physics, engineering, chemical or mathematical concepts to address the underlying physical processes of cancer, including tumour initiation, growth and metastasis.
  • The development and translation of technologies for direct applications in, or a clear path to, a direct application in the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of cancer. Proposals for the first applications of technologies in cancer research and those which demonstrate potential clinical applicability are encouraged.

The call deadline is 17 November 2014. Full information can be found at this link.

If you are thinking of applying to this call please let me know.
