The aim of the Marie Curie Cancer Care Research Programme is to provide evidence to inform better quality of care for those with advanced progressive life-limiting conditions which are likely to shorten their lives within the foreseeable future.
Marie Curie Cancer Care is spending £1 million each year to fund high quality research with the potential to improve end of life care for those with cancer and other advanced progressive life-limiting conditions.
Marie Curie Cancer Care will be assisted by Cancer Research UK, who will administer the application process and grant funding.
We are fortunate to have the continued support of a number of experts to aid the selection process for the Marie Curie Cancer Care Research Programme.
