Funding Opportunity

CureSearch Opens Competition for Pediatric Research Awards 


CureSearch for Children’s Cancer began taking applications for its International Grand Challenge Awards addressing three challenges in pediatric cancer treatment. The awards will be worth between $2 million and $3 million.

The three challenges are: the validation of novel biomarkers to improve clinical outcomes for high­risk pediatric cancers; novel approaches for complementary, combination therapies targeting high­risk pediatric cancers; and accelerating novel therapeutics and innovative technologies developed for adults into the pediatric cancer realm.

Applicants can submit through Proposal Central, with award notifications being released in November 2016. Funding will be provided January 2017 through December 2019. The complete Request for Applications is available on the CureSearch website.
