Our Current Focus on Pediatric Cancer Research

Grant Cycle is currently closed for submissions!

Grant applications will no longer be accepted for 2018 consideration. For more information and procedures,please see the Grants tab above.The Foundation currently funds grants for research in the following areas:

Stem Cell Transplantation: Ongoing research in stem cell transplantation includes the identification of alternative allogeneic (non-identical human) donors, including unrelated umbilical cord blood, unrelated adult bone marrow, mismatched family member, new methods to purify autologous (patient’s own) stem cells, and reduction in complications of graft-versus-host disease.

Stem Cell Biology: Research studies include investigations in the molecular and cellular regulation of blood cell formation, enhancement of neutrophil and platelet recovery after chemotherapy, and expansion of stem cells outside the body.

Molecular Oncology: This research involves the investigation of the genes and mechanisms associated with the initiation, development, and control of childhood leukemia and lymphomas.

Molecular and Cellular Genetics: This research entails investigations into the mechanisms and new experimental approaches to control and turn off cancer-causing genes (oncogenes) and the insertion of new genes (gene therapy) to enhance immune-mediated tumor killing and correction of genetic defects.
