Grants of up to $60,000 to USA and Canada nonprofit institutions, organizations, and researchers for cancer research projects. Funding is intended to support early-career scientists focused on a medical area that has historically received limited researcher attention. Specifically, funding may be used to research strategies that may lead to the development of therapies to prevent the transition from pre-leukemia to leukemia for patients with RUNX1-FPD.
A research and advocacy venture committed to funding world-class, innovative, and cross-disciplinary cancer research to develop a cancer prevention therapy for RUNX1 familial platelet disorder (RUNX1-FPD) with predisposition to blood cancer. The program also aims to support, inform, educate, and connect patients, healthcare providers, researchers, and other stakeholders in the RUNX1 community.
Aims of research proposals must be relevant to the goal of preventing hematologic malignant transformation in RUNX1-FPD. Proposals that seek to translate from bench to bedside will receive priority.
Example areas of research interests include:
Estimated Size of Grant:
The RUNX1 Early Career Investigator grant is a 3-year award.
- Project Start Date: April 2023 (contingent upon receipt and approval of new award requirements)
- Project End Date: April 2026
