Do you have an innovative idea which could be applied to sensor technologies for liquid biopsy?
Cancer Research UK has teamed up with the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) to create a new funding committee to support research aimed at detecting cancer earlier.
The Early Detection Research Committee is holding their first event, a 3-day workshop entitled Early Detection Innovation Workshop in Oxfordshire on July 16-18th. The event will bring together scientists from cancer biology, engineers, chemists and physical scientists, mathematicians and statisticians, computer scientists, healthcare professionals, and those working in the digital and technology space. The aim is to catalyse multidisciplinary and revolutionary research ideas to develop sensor technologies for liquid biopsy.
After the workshop interested parties are invited to apply for seed funding of £100k to cover the cost of their feasibility studies.
Organisers/ funders: CRUK, EPSRC, STFC
Theme: Sensor technology for liquid biopsy
Application deadline: 24th May 2018
Workshop Location: Oxford Belfry, Oxfordshire
Funding: £100k over 1 year to cover feasibility/pilot study
Open to: cancer biology, engineers, chemists and physical scientists, mathematicians and statisticians, computer scientists, healthcare professionals, and those working in the digital and technology space
