You can help make a difference!
This year, Cure Cancer received over 100 applications from brilliant emerging scientists with innovative research projects that have the potential of making a real difference in the future of cancer treatment.
We shortlisted 17 high impact cancer research projects, following a rigorous assessment process. We are delighted to confirm that we can fund 14 of these researchers and their projects in 2024.
We are now actively looking to secure funding for the remaining three shortlisted brilliant researchers. Their projects, independently assessed through two rounds of peer review, have been recognised for their potential high impact.
With your help, our goal is to provide funding for these three inspiring scientists, kick-starting their ideas and giving them the opportunity to advance their unique research projects.
