Call for Proposals in Screening, Prevention and Early Diagnosis

NCRI’s Screening, Prevention and Early Diagnosis (SPED) group will be holding a workshop on Wednesday 16 November 2016.

The aim of this workshop is to help investigators with ideas for studies to be developed into an application which can subsequently be submitted to a funding committee. We are therefore inviting brief outline proposals from investigators in the areas of Screening, Prevention or Early Diagnosis to discuss at the workshop.

To allow sufficient discussion time, we hope to discuss approximately 6 proposals at the workshop.  Investigators will be invited to give a presentation, followed by a discussion on how the proposal might be developed.

To submit your ideas for studies, please download and complete this proforma, which is not onerous and will be treated in confidence.

If we receive more applications than we can include in the workshop, we shall prioritise based on how developed the proposal is.  Prioritisation will be decided by the SPED Chair and the NCRI Clinical Research Director.

The deadline for preliminary applications is Friday 30 September 2016. Please send completed applications to
