Founded in 1996, the Marsha Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer Research provides funding for innovative research pilot studies, scholar grants to up-and-coming investigators in ovarian cancer research, early detection screening for ovarian cancer, and nationally and internationally attended research symposia on ovarian cancer.
The center currently is accepting applications for pilot study projects.
Through the center's Pilot Study Program, up to ten grants of $75,000 each will be awarded to investigator-initiated projects in all areas of ovarian cancer research, as well as projects designed to analyze data from already funded clinical trials. Priority will be given to proposals that are innovative, multidisciplinary, likely to lead to the submission of grant applications for independently funded investigations, and have translational research potential.
Investigators at all levels are encouraged to apply.
See the Rivkin Center website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
