The American Brain Tumor Association Research Funding Program encourages career development in the field of brain tumor research, explores innovative research, and seeks collaborative funding opportunities.
The research includes Basic Research Fellowships to support new and early career scientists, Translational Grants to support researchers working to transition research from the laboratory to actual patient treatment, and Discovery Grants for high-risk, high-impact projects deemed to have potential to change current diagnostic or treatment paradigms. It also includes Medical Student Summer Fellowships for bright medical students to pursue careers in neuro-oncology as well as collaborative grants.
This year, the American Brain Tumor Association’s Research Funding Program is supporting 40 research projects across a wide range of projects and ideas.
“As a young independent investigator, the funds from ABTA allowed my lab to better define research directions, participate in important collaborations, and recruit and cover expenses for our first graduate student. It has reaffirmed my commitment to cancer research.”
