To stop cancer by starting new discoveries worldwide

Worldwide Cancer Research support innovative and truly novel ideas that have the potential to revolutionise our understanding of cancer and how to beat it. We fund blue-sky thinking in research and direct funding towards projects that could transform an area of cancer research or one day have a major impact on the lives of people with cancer.

We fund discovery and translational research but do not prioritise any field of research within this; we welcome research that draws on epidemiological, behavioural and clinical data to provide a starting point for a new avenue of research. Multidisciplinary or discipline-hopping projects are encouraged where this helps stimulate innovation. We will support any researcher with a brilliant idea, no matter where in the world they are based.

We were founded 45 years ago to support brand new avenues of research and allow scientists to take intellectual risks in exploring challenging new concepts and approaches. By kick-starting new avenues of research all over the world, we have already seeded medical advances that are saving lives today, and we will continue doing that for the future. Success from a Worldwide Cancer Research grant is the generation of the solid initial findings required to secure downstream funding from other sources.
