Propose a project

Cancer Therapeutics CRC (CTx) regularly partners with external research groups and organisations to bring new projects and drug targets through our small molecule drug discovery pipeline. We are always interested in receiving new and innovative cancer drug discovery proposals and invite researchers to submit new drug target ideas. Drug discovery projects are run and managed by CTx in close collaboration with you, the project champion. If you would like to propose a new drug discovery project to us based on your ground-breaking research, please contact us at to request a new project proposal form and initiate discussions.
