Prostate cancer cells

What we want to fund next

With help from the Movember Foundation, we have committed to invest up to £25 million in research over the next three years.

In our new research strategy there are three priority areas. Proposals from researchers must target at least one of these to be considered for funding:

  1. Identifying men at highest risk of developing clinically significant prostate cancer
  2. Distinguishing aggressive prostate cancer from indolent disease
  3. Finding new, targeted treatments for advanced prostate cancer 

Training and Fellowship awards

The Prostate Cancer UK Career Development Fellowship award round is now closed.

The next round of the Academy of Medical Sciences Starter Grants for Clinical Lecturers scheme is now closed.

The second round of the Prostate Cancer UK - College of Radiographers Clinical Research Training Fellowships is now closed.

The next round of joint Medical Research Council Clinical Research Training Fellowships is now closed.

Our call for PhD studentships 2013 is now closed.

We are offering a number of other awards including clinical research training fellowships in partnership with Royal College of Surgeons and Starter Grants for Clinical Lecturers with the Academy of Medical Sciences.

Pilot awards, Project grants and Clinical research grants

We welcome applications from established researchers within the UK - who have a strong track record in their field - to undertake innovative science which addresses (at least) one of our three research priority areas. More information about each of these funding opportunities will follow shortly.

Movember Centre of Excellence 

The Movember Centre of Excellence will act as a multi-disciplinary hub for UK prostate cancer research, collaborating with national and international research networks to accelerate the use of new discoveries across the UK.

Survivorship Research Funding

Survivorship studies focussed on improving the quality of life of men living with and beyond prostate cancer will now be funded separately to bio-medical research. A new strategy and funding programme is being developed in this area and we expect to open a funding round for survivorship research next year.
