The Chief Scientist Office (CSO), of the Scottish Government’s Health and Social Care Directorates, has responsibility for encouraging and supporting research into health and health care needs in Scotland. The CSO has contributed £240,000 towards the funds being made available through the National Awareness and Early Diagnosis Initiative for research in awareness and early diagnosis of cancer. This contribution ensures that researchers from Scottish universities are eligible to submit research proposals to this UK-wide initiative being led by Cancer Research UK.
