The NCRI will be holding a Head & Neck Proposal Guidance meeting on 25 May 2021. The deadline for submissions is Friday 30 April 2021, at 12:00pm.  

The aim of this Proposal Guidance meeting is to help investigators with ideas for studies and develop them into an application which can subsequently be submitted to a funding committee. We are currently inviting brief outline proposals from investigators in the areas of Head & Neck cancer to be considered for review by a panel of experts in the field. Review panels will consist of members covering aspects of; Translational Science, Surgery and localised therapiesRadiotherapy and systemic therapy, epidemiology and survivorship and patient and carers as well as other specialists.

Successful applications will be invited to give a presentation, followed by discussion and recommendations from panel members on how the proposal might be developed. Feedback will be written by panel members and summarised for applicants in order to consider aspects of study development, before submitting to subsequent funding streams. We welcome applications at all stages but please note that worked up applications ready for submission will gain less from the review process than early-mid stage applications. The outline proforma is not onerous and will be treated in confidence. If we receive more applications than we can include in this review, we shall prioritise submissions based on relevance to the remit of the call and prioritisation will be decided by the Head & Neck Executive Group.  

 The deadline for applications is 30 April 2021. Please complete the following application formWithin the form you will be required to complete the following Proforma to attach to your application form, along with a flowchart/protocol diagram if you so wish.
