Individual Investigator Award

From 1998 – 2007, OCRF offered Individual Investigator Awards to advance outstanding early career researchers whose projects focused on early detection, screening, and basic translational research. These $100,000 grants were intended to yield results within two years or less. The ultimate aim of the program was to enable investigators, with promising results in hand, to obtain grants from the National Cancer Institute or other large funding agencies.
