Our three distinct research programs fund both pre-clinical and clinical research, and are each designed to accelerate the pace of pediatric drug development and deliver new treatments directly to the children who so desperately need them:

CureSearch Young Investigator

Through our Young Investigator awards, we combat the loss of promising scientists from the field by providing significant financial support to investigators early in their research careers. These grants are limited to truly transformational science designed to deliver the next generation of cancer treatment to the clinic in three to five years.


CureSearch Acceleration Initiative

Our Acceleration Initiative projects are highly innovative, address a significant challenge in pediatric cancer drug development, and have a strong probability of clinical application โ€” ready to reach patients within three years.


CureSearch Catapult Awards

CureSearch Catapult Awards propel high-potential research out of the lab into the clinic and ultimately, to the kids who need it most. Our Catapult Awards provide funding for Phase 1 or Phase 2 clinical trials that advance promising therapies for pediatric cancer. The Catapult Award uniquely funds cutting-edge clinical trials that begin enrolling patients in less than a year, and every applicant must provide a development plan that demonstrates their ability to move into later-phase clinical trials if successful.
