Sarcoma UK – Open Grants and Genomic Research Grants

  Thursday, 30 Sep 2021 | Funding Deadline

Sarcoma UK is a national charity focussing on all types of sarcoma. It offers funds and grants to seek answers and find effective treatment for sarcoma.

The following calls are open for application:


  • Open Grant Round: For applications across all areas of sarcoma research, including laboratory and clinical research:
    • Small Grants, up to £50,000 in value. These can be used to pump prime ideas and provide proof of concept or fund additional research to a larger project already underway.
    • Large Grants, up to £150,000 in value. These are to undertake a substantive piece of work; this type of application must support a member of staff as a directly incurred cost (can be a researcher or PhD student).


  • Genomic Research Grant Round: For applications which further knowledge into sarcoma genomics. £200,000-250,000 in funding will be available to support one research project. Sarcoma UK encourage applications which build on, or link in with, the work previously funded by Sarcoma UK as part of this funding stream: 2018: GeCIPing Sarcoma: A UK-led initiative to personalise sarcoma treatment; 2019: A genomic approach to unlocking the secrets of sarcoma; 2020: Exploring genomic data to find gene networks and new treatments for liposarcoma patients.


Deadline for proposals: 30 September 2021
