Description

LAUNCHING SKIN CANCER BREAKTHROUGHS

Since 1979, The Skin Cancer Foundation has been empowering people to take a proactive approach to daily sun protection and the early detection and treatment of skin cancer. Yet every year, as many as 5.4 million people in the U.S. alone are diagnosed with the world’s most common cancer. And though enormous strides have been made in treatments for all types of skin cancer — including a nearly fivefold increase in overall survival for advanced melanoma — there is still much work to do.

That’s why, for 40 years, the Foundation has been awarding research grants to early career investigators to support pilot research projects related to prevention, detection and treatment of skin cancer. Many of our grantees’ studies have led to important breakthroughs.

Each year, our Skin Cancer Foundation Research Grants Committee Chair David Polsky, MD, PhD, assembles a group of world-class volunteer physicians to review the applications and select the grantees. 

To be awarded:

$50,000 Research Grant Award$50,000 Research Grant Award$25,000 Research Grant Award

Application period closes at 11:59pm (Eastern) July 14, 2024
