Research Grant Program

Supporting brain tumour research in Canada allows each of us who are affected by brain tumours to both better understand this disease and to move closer to finding new treatments, improving current treatments, and enhancing the quality of life for brain tumour patients.

Thanks to donors, the Research Grant Program provides financial support to Canadian researchers with critical funds that help to propel their research forward into the future.

Proposals that receive funding include research that involves any and/or all of the following:

  • The development of new concepts
  • Patient-oriented research such as clinical trials, epidemiological studies, quality of life studies, outcomes, health services research
  • Pre-clinical research evaluating the therapeutic potential of recent discoveries in the basic mechanisms of either brain tumour pathogenesis or experimental therapeutics

One researcher says,

"Funding from Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada provided the necessary seed money to test novel ideas associated with my pediatric brain tumour work during my first year as a principal investigator. This grant also provided funds for a new graduate student in my laboratory. As a new investigator in Canada during a time when every dollar counts, support fromBrain Tumour Foundation of Canada helps to ensure I have all the necessary resources to move my research forward and find new therapeutic targets for this highly malignant and aggressive disease."

Innovative research proposals such as those that incorporate novel or original concepts that have the potential to make a difference are also considered. Applications for grants up to $25,000.00 will be considered.
