This scheme supports pilot studies that explore and develop novel concepts that may eventually lead to significant improvements in clinical outcomes, including quality of life, for people with brain tumours.
We also welcome proposals that explore innovative approaches that could fundamentally change our understanding, diagnosis, and/or management of brain tumours.
This scheme aims to allow the generation of sufficient data to support applications for larger scale projects to national/international funding organisations.
To obtain input from those affected by brain tumours, we strongly recommend that applicants access our Research Involvement Network (RIN) for public and patient involvement. In order to receive feedback from the RIN, please allow for a minimum of 3 weeks turnaround time.
Proposals should address a key, unresolved area in brain tumour research that could lead to a shift in the concepts or methods that drive the field
