For Researchers

Myeloma UK funds research to find answers and lead change in our goal to Make Myeloma History.

Funding call for research proposals into Myeloma Informatics

We are seeking applications to answer a research question in myeloma which harnesses the power of cancer informatics to increase knowledge into myeloma.

We acknowledge the power of cancer informatics and its ability to combine multiple results and data sources, balancing quality and depth of information to answer a research question which benefits myeloma patients.

We recognise this may involve more than one discipline which could be clinical and/or lab-based, and may include: radiological, histopathology, DNA/RNA analysis, blood analyses, genomic analyses, proteomics, epigenetics, gene expression and metabolomic analyses.

We welcome novel proposals which learn from other areas of research and benefit from cross-disciplinary approaches.

Date call opens: Wed 20 Oct 2021

Deadline date:  3pm Thursday 20 Jan 2022

Maximum Funding per project: £240,000
