Established in 2005, the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network is a national community dedicated to increasing public understanding of bladder cancer. To that end, the network provides patients, caregivers, and the medical community with the educational resources and support services they need to navigate their bladder cancer journey and works collaboratively with the medical community to provide funding for research on effective treatments.
The organization currently is accepting applications for its Young Investigator Awards program. Through the program, one-year grants of $50,000 will be awarded to two scientists working in any field that lends itself to bladder cancer research, including basic, translational, clinical, epidemiologic, or bioengineering.
Eligible candidates must have completed a professional degree (MD, PhD, MPH) or the equivalent within the past six years.
See the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
