Our Research Priority


Our research priority is to fund projects with clear translatable outcomes that are most likely to lead to an improvement in treatment in the relatively near future. 

The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust's grant funding will be allocated to teams attached to recognised medical or academic institutions and usually within the UK or Ireland. We award funding via our Research Advisory Panel in line with guidance from the AMRC.
