OCRA Awards $7 Million in Research Grants for 2023

OCRA is pleased to award $7 million in ovarian cancer research funding for 2023, representing the largest annual research investment in our history. With this funding, 20 cancer researchers at 15 medical institutions across the country will pursue projects that break new ground in the fight against this disease.

Selected by OCRA’s Scientific Advisory Committee for their potential to move the needle forward, these studies focus on a wide range of issues impacting the ovarian cancer community — seeking to overcome PARP inhibitor resistance; identifying recurrent disease earlier; predicting response to treatment; finding new therapeutic targets and biomarkers; improving effectiveness of immunotherapy; understanding the mechanisms that drive pre-cancerous cells in the fallopian tube to develop into invasive ovarian cancer; and more.

“OCRA is thrilled to fund this promising group of scientists who are determined to build on our current scientific knowledge of ovarian cancer, and break new ground to find better ways to identify, prevent, and treat this terrible disease,” said Audra Moran, OCRA’s President & CEO.

Your support made this funding possible. We are deeply grateful to our entire community for your commitment to research, advocacy, and patient programs that can change the face of this disease, and save lives. 

We look forward to sharing updates on our grantees and their projects, as well as news from across the ovarian cancer field, throughout the year. Learn more about our 2023 grantees and their exciting projects.
