Seed Grants for New Ideas in Cancer Research

The UNC Lineberger Seed Grant Program gives researchers the opportunity to develop new and promising ideas for cancer research, early detection and prevention. In an increasingly competitive funding environment, seed grants play a critical role in accelerating novel ideas, helping new investigators get started and providing preliminary data to pursue large federally funded grants aimed at transformative breakthroughs in care. Opportunities for establishing a permanently endowed, named seed grant fund begin at $25,000.
