For Researchers

CURE Childhood Cancer is committed to driving innovative research to improve survival and reduce adverse effects of treatment of children with cancer. We believe that every child deserves a chance to thrive and today’s cure rates are simply not good enough. With this in mind, our goal is to fund projects that will reach the bedside within five years if not sooner.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Proposal Central

How are funding decisions made?

All proposals are reviewed by our Scientific Advisory Council and scored for scientific merit and alignment with CURE’s research goals. The SAC makes recommendations to the Board of Directors, which ultimately decides what proposals to fund. Decisions are based on scores and the amount of funds available.

Does CURE award multi-year grants?

We will consider a multi-year grant for clinical projects only.

What is the typical grant size?

There really is not a “typical” grant award. All proposals must include a detailed budget, and that is reviewed and evaluated by the Scientific Advisory Council.

Who can I contact with questions?

Please direct questions to our Executive Director, Kristin Connor, at kristin@curechildhoodcancer.org.
