Research Applications and Awards

The Bridge Award Program is designed to enhance cancer‐related research at New Jersey institutions by providing funding to promising and productive investigators who anticipate a short‐term interruption in funding for research projects focused on cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.

The Pediatric (Childhood) Cancer Research projects focus on the causes, prevention, education, treatment or cure of pediatric cancer, or the symptoms or effects experienced by patients following the completion of a course of treatment for pediatric cancer.
