Research Grants & Fellowships

For over 30 years, the Prevent Cancer Foundation has been funding grants and fellowships that demonstrate potential for impact on cancer prevention/early detection. The goal of the Research Program is to provide funding for innovative projects expected to lead to future funding from other peer-reviewed sources. The grants and fellowships selection process utilizes a research proposal review system similar to that of the National Institutes of Health.

Research proposals are reviewed by members of a distinguished Scientific Review Panel. Members of the panel are drawn from outstanding institutions such as:

  • Georgetown Lombardi Cancer Center
  • Johns Hopkins University
  • M.D. Anderson Cancer Center
  • National Cancer Institute
  • University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine
  • Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center

The Foundation supports research that demonstrates potential for impact on cancer prevention. The Foundation defines cancer prevention as the “reduction of cancer incidence through research, education and early detection.”

Our 2020 grants and fellowships cycle is now closed. Notifications will be sent on December 8, 2020.
