Moondance Cancer Initiative is a new, philanthropist-backed, not-for-profit company dedicated to finding solutions that help more people in Wales survive cancer.

We want to help achieve significant and sustained improvements in cancer survival over the next ten years, through targeted funding and innovation.

The Clinical Director will provide clinical oversight to Moondance’s portfolio of grant investments and projects – helping us to identify potential game-changing innovations, to support them to be trialled in Wales and, where evaluation demonstrates their potential, to encourage uptake of these innovations across the country.
