This award is open to researchers with a PhD (or equivalent higher research degree) and a minimum three (3) years post-PhD experience affiliated to a recognised educational or healthcare institution. However, if you have less than three (3) years of independent research experience, you may still apply under the mentorship of a senior researcher. We encourage involvement from community groups and patients, including as co-investigators and/or collaborators.
The lead applicant must be based at a university or research institution or hospital in the UK or US. National or international collaborations will be considered as long as the award can be administered through a lead host institution based in either country.
All proposals must align with our Research Strategy and should be innovative, solution-oriented and seek to develop recommendations.
The three main criteria used to select successful projects will be:
- Relevance to people affected by prostate cancer
- Scientific excellence and innovation
- Collaboration with other scientists
