CPI 2023-24 Research Grants – Request for Proposals

Cancer Prevention Initiative
LOI Due Date
Brief Description

We are excited to learn of your new ideas in therapeutic cancer prevention.

The goal of CPI’s research grant program is to identify and provide seed funding for innovative projects that have the potential to make substantial contributions to the development of therapeutic interventions for the prevention of inherited cancers.

We welcome research ideas from all individuals irrespective of their background or professional roles. You need not be a principal investigator or a clinician to apply. If you have a new idea for a project rooted in scientific rationale and the potential to revolutionize cancer prevention, we encourage you to apply.

Our aim is to bridge funding gaps by considering projects that may not align with the conventional criteria of established funding agencies.

We firmly believe that prevention is better than treatment. Therefore, we are actively seeking to attract the best minds in the field of cancer research to join our efforts in cancer prevention research.

Research grants are up to $150,000 per year for a period of up to three (3) years. Awards are limited to a total maximum of $450,000

We are open to considering both short-term pilot projects and long-term in-depth studies.

Two step application process:

  1. Letter of Intent (LOI) Application – required from all applicants.
  2. Full Application – by invitation only for projects chosen for funding consideration based on LOI.
