What makes us different?

AICR is unique in that:

  • We have no geographical boundaries - we fund the best science, no matter where it takes place
  • With 2 funding rounds per year, we can react quickly to new developments
  • We do not employ scientists nor run labs. By not being encumbered by financial overheads we can maximise the funds going towards cancer research
  • As we are not tied to specific programmes, AICR has the freedom to support innovative research into less well funded areas of cancer
  • Projects are carried out in collaboration with top class institutions - this ensures that overheads are minimised and duplication avoided
  • All projects are peer reviewed by world experts in their field
  • AICR makes a point of inviting applications from recently qualified researchers, thus investing in the future of cancer research by allowing tomorrow's leading researchers to establish themselves
