Cancer research funding

We take action today to save lives in Yorkshire.

We are a ‘research-led’ charity focused on delivering solutions and real benefits to the people of Yorkshire.

We have a range of funding opportunities that researchers can apply for to help people in Yorkshire avoid cancer, get the earliest possible diagnosis and receive better treatments.

Our priorities include:

•    Reducing the risk of developing cancer
•    Improving early diagnosis and cancer screening
•    Improving treatments

Our work focuses on those cancers which are most common and those that cause the most deaths each year in Yorkshire. We support all phases of clinical trials from feasibility through to phase III and insist that any research we fund will have a direct impact on the people of Yorkshire during the life-time of the Award.
