Welcome to Prostate Cymru

Research & Innovation Grants

RESEARCH AND INNOVATION FUND

 Prostate Cymru is the leading charity in the Principality which aims to support the community and medical profession in Wales in the fight against all prostate diseases, benign and malignant.

To date we have supported major initiatives to raise awareness of prostate cancer and improve the management of men with prostate cancer in Wales by funding specific projects such as surgeon training for robotic assisted prostate surgery.

PROSTATE CYMRU OBJECTIVES

  • providing support, education and practical advice.
  • advancing the education of the general public in all areas relating to Prostate Problems; and
  • promoting and influencing effective care, involvement and support for people affected Prostate Problems

RESEARCH AND INNOVATION FUND

Prostate Cymru is pleased to confirm a new initiative to support research projects relating to prostate disease in Welsh men.  These ‘one off’ grants can be used to fund small projects or act as a ‘pump priming’ grant to stimulate larger projects.  Applications for grants up to £10,000 are invited in the following areas:

  1. Scientific and clinical research
  2. Innovations in the investigation, diagnosis and treatment of prostate disease

APPLICATION PROCESS

 Applications for grants from Prostate Cymru’s research and innovation fund should be submitted to tina.tew@prostatecymru.com in the format of a word document. Applications must include the name of the applicant, affiliation, contact details including email address, the category (research or innovations) and a 300-word summary of the proposed project including the hypothesised outcome of how it will help men with prostate diseases and the method of evaluation.

Applications can be made at any time and there is no closing date. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application via email. Successful applicants are expected to provide the charity and its trustees a mid-point interim report and a full report on the completion of the project.
