Up to £1 million of funding from SBRI Healthcare is available for companies that develop innovative solutions to improve cancer care.

SBRI Healthcare is an NHS England initiative led by the academic health science networks. The next funding round focuses on finding innovative solutions that have the ability to transform cancer screening and facilitate earlier and faster diagnosis of cancer. It is being launched on 25 July by RM Partners Research Director, Professor Stan Kaye, and Research Manager Dr Michelle Chen.

Successful applicants can receive up to £100,000 including VAT of funding for phase one (feasibility) and up to £1 million including VAT for phase two (development) for solutions that match the needs of the NHS.
