Grants to USA, Canada, and International researchers for cancer-related research projects. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended for research studies that focus on identifying, characterizing, treating, or overcoming resistance to therapies in lung tumors harboring alterations in oncogenic drivers in NSCLC cells, tissues, mouse models, or patients.

Work supported through this mechanism will address important mechanistic questions and developmental therapeutics across the care continuum and have the potential to increase survivorship. In 2022, in partnership with leading patient advocacy organizations, this grant mechanism will focus on three specific oncogenes: EGFR, MET, and KRAS.

Applications are encouraged on a wide variety of topics related to EGFR, MET, or KRAS-driven lung cancer, including, but not limited to the following:

  • Biology and mechanisms of tumor progression
  • Mechanisms of resistance to targeted therapies
  • Novel treatment approaches, combinations, and new therapies
  • Studies on the immune landscape, tumor microenvironment, and immunotherapies.

For additional specific topics of interest related to the individual oncogenic drivers, see:
