Disruptive Innovation Grants in Cancer Research FREE Jan 25 2024, 12-1pm EST. 
The Lotte and John Hecht Memorial Foundation and the Canadian Cancer Society are excited to announce the upcoming launch of a new funding opportunity entitled “ Disruptive Innovation Grants in Cancer Research”. The initiative calls for those projects that have very limited opportunities to be funded through traditional mechanisms. We will consider high risk projects with minimal or no preliminary data that, if successful, are likely to have a significant impact on cancer. Originality will be a key driver of success and will exclude projects that are incremental progression of existing studies. Up to 16 projects will be funded at $250,000 per project over two years. Specific details will be available in January 2024.
