BASO/Rosetrees call for cancer surgery research grant applications

The British Association of Surgical Oncology (BASO) invites applications for research grants in cancer surgery in partnership with the Rosetrees Trust.

This exciting new research grant call will run for one year initially and if successful, will continue for a further two years.

A total of up to £50,000 per annum will be awarded. This amount would be split between one or more applicants depending on the quality of applications received. Research grants are aimed at supporting innovative research projects in surgical oncology that will develop further towards clinical translation. We particularly welcome multidisciplinary applications and ones that demonstrate an important improvement in delivery of cancer care or improvement in surgical treatment. Successful applications will be eligible for inclusion in the NIHR portfolio and are encouraged to gain support from a Royal College of Surgeons of England Surgical Interventional Trials Unit (SITU)..


The lead applicant will usually be a substantive UK consultant surgeon or a UK trainee on a rotation with guaranteed employment for the duration of the grant. We will favour principle applicants who are cancer surgeons (members of BASO), holding a PhD (or equivalent) and or a team with a track record of managing grants, delivering research studies and a strong publication record. Applications should recognise the multidisciplinary nature of cancer care and encourage Associate PIs to participate, when applicable.

The application round opens on January 16th, 2023 and closes on May 16th.
