Breast Cancer Now only funds research into breast cancer. We will support research at any research institution in the UK and Ireland.
Important update regarding our research funding:
Due to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), Breast Cancer Now has had to make many difficult decisions, including suspending much of our volunteering, campaigning, research and support services activity, which is all critical to delivering the life-changing care and world-class research that so many people depend on us for. We have also seen many of our fundraising activities paused or cancelled. We are working quickly to understand how COVID-19 will impact our income.
In the meantime, we have had to make the cautious decision to defer the project and PhD grant application round until we have more clarity. We do not have exact dates for the opening of the next grant round as we are continuing to monitor the situation. For updates, please contact us at email@example.com and we’ll add your details to our mailing list where you can hear more about new funding opportunities.
We realise the huge impact that this is having on the research community. We will be working hard to get back on track as quickly as we possibly can.
