Research Project Grant Objective

The objective of the CBCF National Research Grant Program - Research Project Grant 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.
 
In order to address research needs across the breast cancer continuum, the Foundation has established two broad areas of focus: basic and pre-clinical research; and clinical/evaluative research. Each broad focus area will have its own grant peer review panel. The percentage, number and monetary value of projects funded in each focus area may vary, based upon the number and quality of project proposals received.

Funding Amounts and Duration

Funding available for the National Research Grant Program is determined annually by the CBCF Board of Directors in light of available funds and priorities.
