The Foundation Seed Grant program has been extremely successful in providing research support to basic and clinical scientists and investigators in the United States and overseas. The Seed Grant program funds research in the following areas: treatment/therapy, patient care, early diagnosis, detection, cancer biology, basic science, prevention/metabolism and research core facilities. The goals of the program are:

  • To provide start-up funding for basic scientists and clinicians who intend to test innovative ideas for improving diagnosis and to develop new treatment modalities for pancreatic cancer.
  • To obtain preliminary data required for additional funding from other agencies for pancreatic cancer research.
  • To impact on the understanding of pancreatic cancer cell biology, biochemistry, physiology, morphology and response to therapy.
  • To establish collaborations within the field for mutual projects that can be considered for further funding.

Deadline: Aug. 15, 2024
