Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of our STOP CANCER members and supporters, STOP CANCER proudly presented twenty Research Career Development Awards and Seed Grants at the 25th Annual Research Awards Dinner and Educational Forum held at the Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference Center.  
 
We all know that cancer does not discriminate and this was especially evident as we heard family members and loved ones share their most personal feelings and reasons for their funding of a specific type of cancer research.  It was an emotionally moving evening for these families and our guests, further emphasizing the importance of supporting young cancer research scientists as they continue to develop more effective molecular approaches to the early diagnosis and treatment of all cancers.

STOP CANCER grants are given to the most promising scientists at UCLA’s Jonsson, USC Norris and City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Centers.  STOP CANCER grants are called Research Career Development Awards (RCDA) and Seed Grants. Awardees are selected each year based on nominations of each cancer center’s internal peer review recommendations.

Each STOP CANCER RCDA is for $150,000 which provides three years of research support for awardees while a STOP CANCER Seed Grant is in the amount of $25,000 which provides one year of support. In addition to these grants, the prospective Comprehensive Cancer Centers match the amount with in-kind funds and support in the form of space, equipment, secretarial and administrative support, telephones, laboratory supplies, underlying salary support and other services and interactions between faculty and awardees. With this matching support, a RCDA is valued at over $300,000 and a Seed Grant is valued at $50,000.

Congratulations to our 2017 Awardees!
