Research Grants


AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Cancer research grants are given annually to support junior faculty members as they begin their careers in academic medicine. We support physician scientists who are pursuing a career in academic medicine focusing on a bench-to-bedside approach. With the current shortage of federal funding, these funds are much needed to support the future of cancer research.

Tower Cancer Research Foundation has awarded $2,125,000 in cancer research funds to 32 physicians over the past 9 years.
