The St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants, has just announced its newest round of grants, and Weill Cornell’s Children’s Brain Tumor Project is proud to be a recipient. St. Baldrick’s has committed to grant more than $2 million to support the next generation of St. Baldrick’s Fellows and Summer Fellows at 27 institutions across the U.S.
This award will provide the Children’s Brain Tumor Project with two to three years of research funding to young doctors training to become pediatric oncology researchers. This grant provides them with protected time in the lab to learn new skills and gives them a launchpad to even bigger research opportunities.
In a funding environment filled with many barriers and few dollars, these grants help bright young minds break into the field, ensuring a vibrant future for childhood cancer research and giving hope to kids with cancer. We are grateful to St. Baldrick’s for recognizing and supporting the work being done at the Children’s Brain Tumor Project/Weill Cornell.
