The next annual submission period to Cancer Research UK (CRUK) will run from 04 February – 14 March. All funded researchers (grantees and institute group leaders) are required to submit data to CRUK through Researchfish on an annual basis.

You can find further information on the CRUK website or visit the Researchfish website. If you have any additional queries, please contact

Researchfish submission is mandatory for all eligible grantees. If Researchfish submission falls below the full compliance rate detailed in the Researchfish policy, CRUK can enforce financial sanctions.

Submission Details

Researchers (including students) will need to log on to Researchfish and submit a return between 04 February – 14 March 2019 to confirm that their information is accurate and complete at that time. Researchers can add information at any time during the year, but they can only submit a return during this period. Where a PI does not expect any further outcomes, he/she can ask the research council to close the grant. Where there are no further outcomes in this period, or where there are no outcomes yet, researchers have to submit a nil return.

Help and Support
