New funders join Europe PMC

We’re delighted that 4 new funders have joined Europe PMC, bringing the total to 24! The new funders are:

Worldwide Cancer Research (formerly AICR), who fund research into the causes of cancer. The AICR is UK-based, but funds projects all around the world, supporting the best scientists wherever they are.

Breast Cancer Campaign, who fund research into breast cancer and will support research at any centre of excellence in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. The charity has a particular interest in supporting innovative research and will fund the best breast cancer research in the UK and Ireland, providing that it is of the highest quality.

Diabetes UK, who focus on research with the potential to make a difference to the lives of people with diabetes. They provide funding to scientists and clinicians working in universities and hospitals throughout the UK.

Prostate Cancer UK, who fund vital research into tests, treatments and the causes of prostate cancer. They support researchers in the UK with an emphasis on innovative research aimed at extending and improving the lives of men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Scientists and clinicians funded by these four funders will join thousands of others who make their published research articles freely available from Europe PMC as soon as possible, and in any event within six months of publication.
