Grants of up to $75,000 to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit, government research, and academic institutions for research related to blood cancers. Funding is intended for proof of concept clinical trials related to repurposed treatments for unsolved blood cancers.

This Request for Proposals (RFP) from Cures Within Reach (CWR) is seeking repurposed treatments to address unsolved blood cancers. We are interested in generic or proprietary drugs that could be repurposed to create "new" treatments to 1) reduce the symptoms, progression or incidence of; 2) restore function lost to; or 3) reduce or eliminate severe side effects of currently used therapies for any blood cancer, thereby improving patient outcomes and quality of life.

Repurposed therapies must be approved and/or generally recognized as safe for human use by some regulatory agency, such as the US Food and Drug Administration, European Medicines Agency, Health Canada or Japan’s Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency.

Eligible clinical repurposing trials may also:

  • Test combination therapies to increase their efficacy, including combining the current disease treatment with a repurposed treatment or combining multiple repurposed therapies
  • Repurpose therapies approved for use in adults into pediatric indications, or vice versa

An unsolved blood cancer is one in which one or more of the following are true:

  • There is currently no effective treatment
  • The current treatment is only effective for a portion of the patient population
  • There is a treatment that is effective, but many patients develop resistance to the therapy
  • There is a treatment that is effective for the entire patient population, but the treatment is very expensive, and therefore some patients cannot get access to the treatment
  • There is a treatment that is effective for the entire patient population with significant side effects, and for some patients the negative side effects outweigh the benefits of the treatment
