Limit of a total of 2 applications per institution. Open to all applicant levels with MD and/or PhD.

The goal of these grants is to overcome barriers to clinical application of new treatment approaches for childhood cancer. A priority is to fund projects that have already shown great promise, but that have a specific funding need to move forward. The three main focus areas for this RFP are:

  • Cancer immunotherapy/Targeted therapy
  • High-grade brain tumors
  • Therapeutic targeting through genomics/epigenetics

Application of novel technologies in these areas are welcome. Applications to fund correlative studies associated with clinical trials in the focus areas will be considered. Funding for the associated clinical trial must have already been secured and applications must include a description of the developmental pathway for the therapeutic approach. 

Please contact MU Foundation Relations before contacting the sponsor directly.
