OxCODE Travel Award

Mission & Overview

The mission of the Oxford Centre for Early Cancer Detection (OxCODE) Travel Award is to raise the profile of Oxford’s cancer early detection and precision prevention research by competitively funding the attendance of early career researchers (students and post-doctoral researchers, or equivalent) at major annual cancer prevention and early detection conferences.

Applications from researchers working on fundamental scientific and/or clinical precision cancer prevention and early detection research are welcome. Priority will be given to applications with an abstract of high scientific quality with a clearly articulated relevance to biologically informed cancer prevention and/or early cancer detection, and applications with a strong justification for how the applicant will benefit by attending this conference.
