Biomedical Research Fellowship Scheme 2018 - Expression of Interest

The Irish Cancer Society is now accepting Expression of Interest applications for the Biomedical Research Fellowship Scheme 2018.

The objective of the Irish Cancer Society Biomedical Research Fellowship Scheme is to support excellent cancer researchers to develop an independent research programme in their chosen area of cancer research.

Applications in the areas of basic or translational biomedical research with a focus on developing a better understanding of novel approaches to cancer are welcome*.

*Please note, applications in the areas of prevention, early detection and drug discovery (1) will not be considered at this time.

(1) Drug discovery research encompasses research that aims to:

  • identify potential new drugs
  • test novel (unapproved) drugs in cancer models

Applications that propose testing approved drugs in cancer models will be accepted.

Please ensure your project does not fall within these areas as your application will not be considered.

A Mentor is required for each application.

All eligible Expression of Interest applications will be reviewed by an international panel and shortlisted applicants will be invited to submit a full application. There is funding available for one Fellowship.

How to apply

The Expression of Interest application can be made through the Irish Cancer Society Grant Tracker online system.


Expression of Interest applications submission deadline: 3pm Friday, 9 March 2018
