Grants to USA, Canada, and International MDs and PhDs affiliated with academic institutions for pediatric cancer research. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended for proposals that are designed to address very challenging issues in pediatric cancer research with the ultimate goal of curing pediatric malignancies.
The Crazy 8 Initiative Award will fund research into innovative and rigorous approaches that directly address the most intractable issues in pediatric cancer research today. This award is designed to coalesce cross-disciplinary cores of scientists working collaboratively in order to accelerate the pace of new cure discovery.
Crazy 8 Disciplines:
Crazy 8 Research Themes:
The proposal should address a topic that is responsive to at least one of the four pediatric cancer research themes listed above. It is expected that successful applications will address one or more of the eight disciplines that formed the basis of the Crazy 8 Initiative. For 2021, priority will be given to projects involving innovative studies of high-grade gliomas, nonmedulloblastoma embryonal brain tumors, non-Ewing Sarcoma fusion-positive sarcomas, fusion-negative sarcomas, big data, and/or catalyzing clinical trials. . Investigators with proposals focusing on leukemias, neuroblastoma, Ewing sarcoma, and medulloblastoma are welcome to apply, but ALSF has set areas of prioritization for this round of funding in order to fund a broadly representative community of investigators working across many different cancer types.
