Results of the 2016 Breast Cancer Research Grants Program Competition
On February 1, 2017, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) and the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) joined forces to become one organization – the Canadian Cancer Society. As a result, CBCF’s grant programs have merged into the Canadian Cancer Society's research portfolio and will adhere to CCS research policies and procedures moving forward.
We are pleased to announce the results of the Canadian Cancer Society Breast Cancer Research Grants Program (formerly the CBCF National Research Grant Program). The goal of this program is to support breast cancer research in Canada that demonstrates scientific excellence, relevance, and innovation and that has the potential to achieve a significant impact on breast cancer. Below is a listing of newly awarded CCS Breast Cancer Research Grants.
14 Breast Cancer Research Grants have been approved – 21% of full proposals received. One-hundred eighty-three LOIs were submitted for review, and following scientific review 72 of these were invited to submit a Full Application and 67 were received. Grants are valued at up to $450,000 over a 3-year term. These 14 new grants represent an investment of almost $5.9 million.
Funds committed to this competition have been made possible by the significant efforts of donors and volunteers across the country, and particularly the CIBC Run for the Cure.
