The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer- and donor-powered charity committed to supporting the most promising research aimed at finding cures for childhood cancers and enabling survivors to long and healthy lives.
In support of this mission, the foundation is inviting applications for its Research Grant Awards program. Through the program, grants of up to $100,000 will be awarded in support of research on the biology of childhood cancers that leads to more effective treatments. Grants are for one-year projects that are hypothesis driven and either laboratory, clinical, or epidemiological in nature.
