Innovation grants are designed as seed funding for researchers with a novel approach to pediatric oncology scientific investigation. This may
represent a change in research direction and/or an innovative new idea that moves away from an
investigator’s prior research but for which a strong case is made for the potential impact on childhood
cancers. Innovation Grants will support research proposals to be carried out by investigators who are
already established, have a track record of peer-reviewed publications and evidence of successfully
competing for extramural funding.
