About Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research

For over two and a half decades, Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation has provided significant financial support to some incredibly promising physician scientists who are applying novel and state-of-the-art techniques to address fundamental problems in the genesis and treatment of blood related cancers. Since 1996, the Foundation has committed more than $38.5 million in grants to over 300 junior faculty members at the nation’s leading institutions. These grants continue to be a sign of excellence and represent support for many of the most exciting new scientific ideas in blood cancer research.

Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation remains committed to funding innovative, translational proposals and to supporting promising independent early-career investigators, rather than well-established, senior scientists. Projects will be funded for a three-year period at $75,000.00 per year (contingent on the submission of acceptable annual progress reports.) As of 2019, we will also accept applications from both Assistant Professors and Associate Professors for *integrative applications only*

Applicants must:
• Have an MD or PhD
• Hold a junior faculty position at a 501(c)(3) teaching research institution
• Hold the designation of Assistant Professor (Associate Professors may apply for *Integrative* projects only)
• Have institutional support in form of tenure track OR be an independent junior faculty member
• Have held their current position no longer than five years (for conventional projects only)
• Clearly state that they have both independent research projects and independent resources
• Have preliminary results and/or publications from their independent laboratory

CFCCC will select up to 2 junior faculty members to move forward with their grant submission, one under each of these categories.

  • One Mainstream/Conventional research project
  • One Integrative Medicine research project (please refer to the attached guidelines for more information about integrative medicine research)

If selected, the grant application (electronic and postmarked hard copies) is due to the foundation on August 26, 2022.
