Request for Applications

CureSearch for Children's Cancer is accepting applications for six (6) Young Investigator Grants in pediatric oncology.

These "Young Investigator Pathway to Independence Grants" are funded at $225,000 each over three years and will be available in the areas of neuroblastoma, palliative care, rhabdomyosarcoma, and three "open" areas. "Open" applications may be in disease or discipline areas of pediatric oncology and will be based on the merits of the research proposed, the productivity of the applicant, mentorship, and environment.

LOI's are due June 20. Full applications by invitation are due in September. Awards will be announced in October 2014 and funding will begin in January 2015.

For those interested in applying, RFAs are available on proposalCENTRAL.altum.com.
