Funding Opportunities - Stand Up to Cancer

Funding Opportunities

Stand Up To Cancer’s (SU2C) multifaceted research teams and investigators are focused on the most innovative approaches to bring more effective therapies to patients quickly, to increase survivorship and to improve quality of life for all cancer patients and survivors.

We are also committed to actively changing the health disparities landscape by supporting research and clinical trials that will develop successful strategies, measurable outcomes, and robust outreach to historically underrepresented racial and ethnic minority populations.

Core Principles

Patients can’t wait for new breakthroughs so SU2C does not operate on traditional grant cycles; rather we open Request For Applications (RFAs) as soon as funds are available. The core principles that guide our application selection process include:

  • Maximizing innovation while minimizing bureaucracy
  • Collaboration over competition
  • Advancing Health Equity in project goals and in grantee team makeup
  • Team environment to facilitate information sharing
  • Goal-oriented projects with defined milestones and deliverables
  • Regular progress reviews

Stand Up To Cancer is committed to eliminating barriers of access to new treatments for all cancer patients by harnessing the promise of precision medicine inclusive of diverse patient populations. We support clinical trials and research studies that have developed successful strategies, measurable outcomes, and robust outreach plans to include historically underrepresented racial and ethnic minority populations. We have developed a toolkit to assist in project planning.

Open Applications

Stand Up To Cancer strongly encourages novel, collaborative, and high-impact proposals. Proposals submitted in response to Requests for Applications (RFAs) are rigorously reviewed, and the most promising, exciting projects are selected by blue ribbon committees.

SU2C Colorectal Cancer Health Equity Dream Team Program

Stand Up To Cancer is making funds available for an SU2C Colorectal Cancer Health Equity Dream Team focused on screening among minority and traditionally underserved populations.

Upcoming Areas of Interest

SU2C is interested in funding innovative research that has the potential to deliver life-saving results to all patients near-term, and supporting collaborations that focus on research in specific diseases or therapeutic approaches.

Areas of interest are best identified by our scientific leadership, strategic imperatives, and existing and emerging collaborations are ripe for breakthroughs that provide the most benefit to patients in the near term. Upcoming areas of interest include:

  • Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) Applications
  • Head & Neck Cancers and Lung Cancers
  • Cancer Interception
  • Pediatric Clinical Trials

 

RESEARCH WE FUND

When new areas of research are identified that could have significant patient impact and potential for breakthrough, SU2C acts quickly to push proposals in these areas from concept to reality. SU2C’s research teams study many cancer types, with a focus on today’s most innovative areas of cancer detection and therapy.
