Neuroblastoma UK invites applications for UK led research that will benefit children with neuroblastoma. Applications from the Republic of Ireland (ROI) will also be considered.  The last competition closed for applications in January 2016 and awards were made in June 2016.

Further Details

A wide range of basic and applied research applications is considered for funding, from studies to understand the origin and development of neuroblastomas to research that aims to improve existing treatments or develop new therapeutic approaches. Research that aims to establish a “proof of principle” for further research will also be considered.  A list of grants awarded from 2008 onwards can be found here.

The lead applicant must be based in a UK or ROI laboratory but applications may contain requests for funding some work outside the UK or ROI, provided all costs are quoted in sterling at a fixed rate. Successful applicants will be expected to adhere to Neuroblastoma UK’s Terms and Conditions for grant awards. Neuroblastoma UK aims to notify applicants within 6 months of the deadline for the submission of applications.

Examples of forms associated with grants from Neuroblastoma UK are Neuroblastoma UK Grant Application 2016 and Guidance Notes.
