  • Investigators must work in the cancer control sector, with an interest and experience in supportive care, survivorship or clinical trials, or be collaborating with an individual or team with experience in these areas;
  • The project must address an unmet need and build capacity to conduct and recruit to cancer clinical trials in supportive care and/or survivorship;
  • Investigators must not be receiving, received or applied for funding from a tobacco industry or any of its agencies or subsidiaries;
