Sarcoma UK offers funds and grants to seek answers and find effective treatment for sarcoma.

In 2018, Sarcoma UK will invest £750,000 into sarcoma research. There are currently two research calls that are open, the 2018 Clinical Research Round and the 2018 Genomic Research Programme. 

Sarcoma UK's research programme has been running since 2009 and has invested more than £2 million in research across 44 projects to date.

The 2018 Clinical Research Call is now OPEN

Sarcoma UK launches its ever popular Clinical Research Round focussing on research which directly impacts patient care. We are looking to invest £260,000 into high quality research which will benefit patients during their diagnosis, treatment and care.

As part of the Clinical Research Round, our themed call this year for the Roger Wilson Award focuses on 'Research which benefits patients at the point of treatment and beyond'. 

Researchers can apply for:

  • Small Grants, up to £25k in value. These can be used to pump prime ideas and provide proof of concept or fund additional research to a larger project already underway.  
  • Large Grants, up to £120k in value to conduct a substantive piece of work, this type of application must support a member of staff as a Directly Incurred cost.

To apply to the 2018 Clinical Research Round, please download and return the Clinical Research Application Form at the bottom of this page. A guide for applicants is also available to download. A seperate Roger Wilson Award application form and guide for applicants is available for those who wish to apply specifically for that award.
