OPERATING GRANT


ABOUT THE OPERATING GRANT
This program allows us to award seed money to the most promising Canadian researchers who submitted original projects related to various aspects of cancer.

The operating grant is the primary means by which the Cancer Research Society supports the research activities of a researcher or a team of researchers.

Amount : $60,000 per year
Duration : 2 years
Start date : September 1

Operating grants are very important to the Canadian scientific community since they allow researchers to carry out research projects on all aspects and for all different types of cancer in order to:

  • Identify the causes of cancer
  • Understand the development of cancer
  • Stop the progression of cancer
  • Improve treatments, and as a result the quality of life of cancer patients
  • Prevent cancer
