World Cancer Research Fund International

This Regular Grant Programme funds research into the effects of diet, nutrition (including body composition) and physical activity on cancer prevention and survivors and focuses on two main themes:

  • Identifying the mechanisms that underpin the effects of diet, nutrition and physical activity on cancer
  • Addressing the host factors that influence an individual’s susceptibility to cancer development or progression

For the research area of cancer survivors, this fund also encourages broader research into the identification of likely causal links between diet, nutrition, physical activity and outcomes after cancer diagnosis, as robust evidence on these links is still lacking.
