2022 call for


Joint funding call with North West Cancer Research

Applications for this Mesothelioma UK 2022 funding grant are now CLOSED.  

North West Cancer Research and Mesothelioma UK wish to work together in order to jointly fund a treatment, care or support focused research study that is based across the North West of England and North Wales.

The study must be mesothelioma specific and have the potential to be generalised to the wider UK mesothelioma community. The expectation is that this project would last 12-months and all costs would be fully covered by the proposed budget of up to £30,000.

If you have any queries, please contact and this will be discussed between both North West Cancer Research and Mesothelioma UK.

Applications must be submitted by 5pm on Monday 18 July 2022.

How to Apply

The application form, application guidance and appendix A are available on the NWCR website.

Applications must be submitted in line with call guidance and appendix A if required. All applications will undergo rigorous external peer and scientific review. Panel members will be available to view once confirmed.

Applications for this Mesothelioma UK 2022 funding grant are now CLOSED.  

Themes for 2022
Applications should detail a clinical research study within the following themes:
1. Improving the patient diagnostic pathway
2. Improving symptom control and/or Quality of Life (QoL)
3. Improving post-diagnostic monitoring and follow up
4. Improving access to diagnostics, treatment, information, trials or support

Studies must be focused solely on mesothelioma and we will consider observational studies, interventional studies, case note reviews or studies that evaluate an app or other technology, or a combination of methods.

We are particularly keen to support projects that may lead to a larger application to Cancer Research UK (CRUK) or a National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) funding stream.

Studies are expected to be completed over a one-to-two-year period, with a start date within three months of awarding.
