Looking for Research Funding

At Breakthrough Cancer Research we fund researchers with projects which aim to improve cancer care and survival.  We favour funding ideas which are patient focused and/or clinically linked and translationally oriented. We look for projects which fulfil our current research priorities.  Bench projects are considered but should a have clear path to translation, however long, and researchers should be clear on the unmet need or clinical challenge the project seeks to address.

We fund in a variety of ways including through our own fellowships and scholarships and also through join funding and partnership schemes such as the MRCG-HRB Joint Funding Scheme and the Irish Research Councils Enterprise partnerships.

Additionally individual projects grants can be sought and the process is different depending on the level of funding sought.  The Scientific Advisory Board discuss potential awards at various intervals during the year so it is advised to make informal inquiries before applying to research@breakcancer.ie.
