NCRI Screening Prevention & Early Diagnosis (SPED) Workshop – 15 May 2019: Call for proposals

The Screening, Prevention & Early Diagnosis Advisory Group (SPED) will be holding a workshop on Wednesday 15 May 2019 in central London. The aim of this workshop is to help investigators with ideas for studies 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 screening, prevention or early diagnosis to discuss at the workshop. Investigators will be invited to give a presentation, followed by a discussion on how the proposal might be developed. We welcome applications at all stages but please note that worked up applications ready for submission will gain less from the workshop 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 the workshop, we shall prioritise based on how developed the proposal is and prioritisation will be decided by the SPED committee.

The deadline for preliminary applications is 5 April 2019. Please complete the following application form here and send completed applications to nanita.dalal@ncri.org.uk.
