Grants to USA and Canada nonprofits to pursue research studies in pediatric oncology as it affects human populations. Funding is intended for research using epidemiological approaches and may focus on early detection, prevention, risk factors, effectiveness, and treatment outcomes.

Eligible Areas of Investigation Using an Epidemiological Research Approach:

  1. Epidemiology and etiology of childhood cancer; identify subgroups at risk, cause and risk factors.
  2. Early Detection of childhood cancer; reduce disease severity and complications, e.g. screening.
  3. Prevention of childhood cancer; prevent the initial development of disease, e.g. immunization, reduce exposure
  4. Comparative effectiveness and outcomes research; evaluate existing or new preventative/therapeutic measures to improve health outcomes for children with cancer or evaluate access to treatment.
  5. Molecular epidemiology studies; identify the contribution of potential genetic risk factors to late effects of treatment, within families and across populations.

The budget may include items such as salary, fringe, supplies, and travel.
