CTRad proposals guidance meetings
CTRad organises proposal guidance meetings up to twice a year, where investigators who have ideas for radiotherapy research are invited to present their proposals for open discussion and feedback from a panel of CTRad experts. The intention of providing this pre-submission peer input is to facilitate successful funding and add value to the proposals, for example by suggesting translational components. Investigators are asked to submit a proforma to CTRad ahead of the meeting, and then will be invited to present to an expert panel and audience of CTRad members. There are usually three or four presentation groups running in parallel, with workstream co-chairs and members spread across groups to ensure a breadth of input.
The next Proposals Guidance Meeting will take place on Wednesday 9 November 2016 after the close of the NCRI Cancer Conference in Liverpool. The deadline for submission of Proposals has now closed.
