Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation , a nonprofit foundation that has evolved from a young cancer patient's frontyard lemonade stand to a national foundation for childhood cancer, awards grants designed to fill critical voids in current pediatric cancer research.
Through its Innovation Grants program, the foundation awards two-year grants of up to $250,000 in support of researchers with a novel approach to pediatric oncology investigation. This can include a change in research direction and/or an innovative new idea that moves away from an investigators prior research but has potential impact for childhood cancers. Innovation Grants will support research proposals to be carried out by investigators who are already established, have a track record of peer-reviewed publications, and can demonstrate evidence of successfully competing for extramural funding.
To be eligible, applicants must possess a degree at the MD, MD/PhD or PhD level and hold a faculty appointment at an academic institution.
Letters of Intent must be received no later than December 15, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by April 2, 2018.
