Find out about projects funded and supported by Moondance Cancer Initiative below. We add updates on active projects on these pages regularly. For information on the types of projects we're interested in funding, see our 'what we do' pages.
Rapid Diagnosis Centres
Wales’ Rapid Diagnosis Centres are an exciting development with the potential to radically reduce time to cancer diagnosis.
Bowel Cancer Programme
Our Bowel Cancer Programme recognises that radical new approaches are needed to achieve a step change in outcomes across Wales. Pivotal to the aims of the programme is the permission to innovate, to test ideas and approaches.
Innovation Time Awards
The Innovation Time Awards support colleagues across NHS Wales to adopt practical and clinical innovations to improve cancer outcomes with immediate impact - whether in cancer services, diagnostics, treatments, enabling technologies or workforce on the ground.
Upper GI Programme
Upper gastrointestinal cancers, namely oesophageal and gastric cancer have some of the poorest survival outcomes in Wales. We are interested in projects with the potential to contribute meaningful improvements to survival outcomes, with particular focus on accelerating progress towards earlier diagnosis, less-invasive diagnostic and treatment technologies, and workforce innovations. We are pleased to have started work in this area through the Transnasal Endoscopy project.
