Our research policies
Our Research Policies
We have a set of research policies that must be adhered to by all applicants for funding from Worldwide Cancer Research. Please read through these carefully before applying.
Our animal research policy
We fund the discoveries that kick-start cancer cures. We believe properly regulated animal research is both necessary and justified when there is no other alternative.
Our human stem cell research policy
We support human embryonic stem cell research conducted under the guidelines laid down by the International Society of Stem Cell Research.
Our tobacco industry funding policy
We do not support any researchers who work with or accept funding from the tobacco industry.
Our open access publishing policy
We believe that all new scientific knowledge should be shared widely so that improvements to the lives of people affected by cancer can be made as quickly as possible.
Our conflict of interest policy
We ensure that any bias or conflict of interest is avoided when we decide which research projects to fund.
