The Prevent Cancer Foundation supports research grants & fellowships for cancer prevention and early detection. The application process is competitive, and proposals are assessed through an external peer review.
Since 1985, our peer-reviewed grants have been awarded to nearly 450 early-career scientists from more than 150 of the leading academic medical centers nationwide. The grants and fellowships selection process utilizes a research proposal review system similar to that of the National Institutes of Health.
Research proposals are reviewed by members of a distinguished Scientific Review Panel. Members of the panel are drawn from outstanding institutions such as:
The Foundation supports research that demonstrates potential for impact on cancer prevention. The Foundation defines cancer prevention as the “reduction of cancer incidence through research, education and early detection.”
