Source: Members Only - Friends For An Earlier Breast Cancer Test is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting awareness and education and to raising funds for research into earlier detection of breast cancer. Since its inception in 1995, Friends has awarded nearly $4 million in seed grants to qualified projects.

To advance this mission, grants of up to $40,000 over one to three years will be awarded in support of pilot research projects focused on new methods aimed at improving detection of early stage breast cancer. Priority will be given to projects that lead to the development of new techniques in the areas of biological or immunologic methods of early detection.

Applications are accepted from both established investigators who have funding but want to embark on a new area of research, as well as less experienced researchers. In either case, the proposal should represent a new approach to the area of interest.

See the Friends website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
