Lustgarten Foundation

Innovator Awards Program


Pancreatic cancer is among the most lethal of all cancers with one of the lowest five-year survival rates. Therefore, the Lustgarten Foundation is announcing its Innovator Awards Program to fund proposals aimed at supporting novel "out of the box" concepts in Basic Research. These Awards will be funded in the amount of $ 100,000 for one year, and may be renewable for an additional year of funding.

Grants are open to domestic and foreign non-profit institutions.  Interested applicants should submit a Concept Proposal. The Foundation will contact the Principal Investigators of selected concepts to invite the submission of full proposals.

Concept Proposal Deadline - Basic Research: September 12, 2011
