BOPA-PRUK Research Award

Pharmacy Research UK (PRUK) and the British Oncology Pharmacy Association (BOPA) have collaborated together for 5 years to provide this opportunity to oncology and haematology pharmacy colleagues. Multiple people have already benefited from this generous award.

This year, the award is worth £20,000. This allows us to offer the whole amount to a single person or to break the award down to offer more people smaller amounts of a minimum of £5,000. The funding can be used to partly or fully fund a research project.

Any member of the pharmacy team can apply. Projects must be related to the provision of oncology or haematology pharmacy services directly impacting patient care and benefit.
