PURPOSE OF AWARD: The pandemic has been a setback for the careers of researchers, particularly women. Sustaining the careers of women in research and preventing the loss of women from academic careers focused on cancer is paramount to accomplishing the V Foundation’s mission. To help level the playing field for women in cancer research, we propose the V Foundation’s “Women Scientists Innovation Award for Cancer Research.”

SPECIAL FOCUS AREA: This request for applications is specifically to fund women cancer researchers utilizing two different grant mechanisms. This opportunity is restricted to adult cancer research and will fund a range of projects from laboratory-based fundamental research through bench-to-bedside strategies. Note: Research areas not included in this scope for any grant type are epidemiology, behavioral science, and health services research.
