Submit your research ideas

This Dragons’ Den style session invites you to submit research ideas for which you need funding, where you will then be pitching your idea to the conference delegates. Prevent Breast Cancer has grants available for up to £10,000 for the best idea(s).

Your submission will be reviewed by a scientific committee, from various backgrounds, prior to an oral presentation on the day to the conference delegates. Selected applications will be required to give a 5 minute presentation followed by a short Q&A from a panel. Awards* will be decided by a combination of audience and panel voting. We hope to announce the successful winner(s) of those grants within 24 hours of the conference.

Your idea should relate to the prevention of breast cancer, with topics including, but not limited to:

  • Underlying risk factors

  • Genetics

  • Prediction and early diagnosis

  • Screening

  • Primary prevention through lifestyle

  • Preventative medication

  • Surgery

  • Public policy
