Young Investigator Program

Home » Research » Young Investigator Program



Through our Young Investigator Awards, we combat the loss of promising scientists from the field by providing financial support to investigators early in their research careers and providing them with career development and mentoring opportunities. These grants are limited to truly transformational science designed to deliver innovative cancer treatments toward clinical trials and train the next generation of pediatric cancer researchers.
