Cancer Research UK (CRUK) has announced a new project aimed at tackling some of cancer's biggest scientific challenges. The charity plans to hand pick crack teams of up to five world class scientists, who will be joined by some of the world's foremost pharmaceutical companies to work on emerging fields to tackle specific questions in cancer research.
Each group of researchers will form a limited company and will receive up to £500,000 over two years. A British-based team has been selected for the first project and further research projects are planned for 2009 and 2010.
