During our 2016 and 2017 'Bone Cancer Conference', we invited candidates to pitch their project live to a scientific panel and lay audience at our 'Strictly Research' event. Our Strictly Research judges awarded scores and offered feedback, and the audience of patients, families, fundraisers and supporters were invited to then vote for their favourite. The winning projects were then awarded funding by the Bone Cancer Research Trust.

We are very grateful to our panel of 'Strictly Research' judge in both 2016 and 2017:

  • Professor Donald Salter (2016)
  • Karen Blakey (2016)
  • Pip Large (2016)
  • Professor Allie Gartland (2017)
  • Dr Jessica Bate (2017)
  • Sarah Dawson (2017)
  • Kenny Rankin (2017)
