The Accelerator Award enables translational research by funding cross-institutional teams to produce tools, platforms and resources which will transform the research landscape.

Funding Period

5 years

Scientific remit

The purpose of the Accelerator Award is to enable progress in translational cancer research through the development of tools, platforms and skills that form the foundations of such research. We fund ambitious programs which typically have multiple strands. These may include:
- Producing datasets, tissue banks, cell lines or models
- Developing methods, protocols, software and standards
- Training, skills and knowledge sharing

Who can apply

We fund ambitious programs which bring together different skills, expertise and perspectives to address difficult problems which can't be solved in isolation. Teams must be led by a PI in the UK, Italy or Spain, but can include a broad variety of co-investigators and collaborators.
