The American Brain Tumor Association seeks applications from faculty who propose highrisk/high-impact projects with the potential to change current diagnostic or treatment paradigms for adult and pediatric brain tumor care.
– ABTA Discovery Grants provide up to $50,000 in support over a one-year period
– Grants are intended to encourage the development of new approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of brain tumors leading to advancements in the understanding and treatment of brain tumors and increasing the potential for improving, extending, and ultimately, saving the lives of those living with a brain tumor diagnosis.
– The funding mechanism specifically encourages novel research, allowing researchers to conduct early scientific studies needed to secure future funding.
– Investigators from sciences outside traditional biological fields are encouraged to apply.
Projects may focus on all brain tumor types, benign or malignant, primary or secondary (metastatic), and may impact pediatric, adult, or both populations.
