NEW Scottish breast cancer research grants

The Scottish Government and leading medical research charity Breast Cancer Campaign have announced an exciting, new six—figure partnership to fund world—class research into breast cancer in Scotland.

Breast Cancer Campaign has partnered with the Chief Scientist Office (CSO) and will offer joint funding of up to £450,000 for Project Grants to be performed in a Scottish Research Institution, in a special joint funding initiative to fund translational biomedical research into breast cancer.

With the CSO and Breast Cancer Campaign contributing £225,000 each, the programme will fund projects into the critical research areas highlighted by the charity in its ground—breaking 2013 publication Help us find the cures.

To be eligible for these awards you must be based in a Scottish institution.
