Reflecting the Center's mission to use cutting edge research in basic and clinical sciences to advance the care of individuals living with BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations, grants are focused on innovative cancer research projects. Investigators who have already received peer-reviewed funding for their proposed projects will not be eligible for this award.
The Basser Stars Pilot program is aimed at young investigators to support their work as they plan submission for national peer-reviewed grant funding.
The scientific objective of the Basser Research Center for BRCA includes the funding of research projects related to BRCA1/2 ranging from basic science to clinical/translational research. Collaborative projects are strongly encouraged. Please note, the science must have relevance to the study of BRCA1/2 to be considered.
The program is currently closed to submissions. Please check back.
