The Mark Foundation Launches RFP for ASPIRE Award

The Mark Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of the ASPIRE Awards (Accelerating Scientific Platforms and Innovative REsearch).

The ASPIRE Awards are designed to enable innovative approaches to solving high-impact problems in cancer research that tend to fall outside the scope of other funding opportunities. These awards will be used to support high-risk, high-reward projects with research plans designed to answer key feasibility and proof-of-concept in an accelerated timeframe, typically one year.

Open to single- and multiple-investigator teams from both industry and academia, applications will be considered in 4 categories: Basic Research; Therapeutic Discovery and Translational Science; Innovative Technologies; and Clinical Research.
