BOPA-PRUK Research Award – NOW OPEN for Applications

The BOPA-PRUK research award

This award provides pharmacy professionals who are new to research with the extra incentive to get their research career started.

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.

For further information please refer to the PRUK website. We recommend you read through all the material contained within the PRUK website before starting your application.

PRUK offer a mentoring scheme available to pharmacy professionals who wish to seek guidance and support for developing their research skills. If you think you could benefit from this please refer to the PRUK webpage.

Visit back soon to hear from some of our previous winners to give you tips and ideas for your research project.
