The AACR-MPM Oncology Charitable Foundation Transformative Cancer Research Grants represents a joint effort to stimulate “high-risk, high-reward” research from early- to mid-career investigators. This novel grant mechanism is intended to promote and support creative, paradigm-shifting cancer research that might not be funded through conventional channels. It is expected that these grants will catalyze significant scientific discoveries that will advance our understanding of cancer and have a potentially transformative impact on future clinical practice.
