B*CURED’s primary goal is to fund innovative brain cancer research that helps end brain cancer.
To that end, the foundation is accepting applications for is 2018 Brain Cancer Research Investigator Grant, which is presented annually to a clinical doctor or research scientist whose primary focus is brain cancer research.
Grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded over twelve months to support clinical and translational research projects directly related to the field of brain cancer. Projects for adult and pediatric brain cancer research will be considered.
To be eligible, applicants must be a faculty member at a research institution in North America who is undertaking clinical or translational research with the intention of applying for R01 NIH funding or the equivalent within five years; or undertaking innovative research to bridge from bench to animal research or to acquire preclinical data from animal models.
