Target Ovarian Cancer's Medical Research Programme
We have just hosted our first ever training day for our new Research Advocates, an exciting new initiative aimed at building lay capacity and expertise for the benefit of the whole ovarian cancer research community. Read more about the day here and more about the role of Research Advocates here.
Target Ovarian Cancer’s Translational and Supportive & Palliative Awards and the Joint MRC Fellowship are now closed for applications. Simon Newman, Target Ovarian Cancer’s Head of Research, said: “I am proud to announce a record number of high quality applications to the UK-wide scheme specifically aimed at improving the lives of women living with ovarian cancer." Funding decisions will announced in late November / early December 2013. For more details of our review process please visit our 'How we award a grant' pages which includes a feature on our innovative Research Advocates who play a key role in the lay review of all applications.
