Crain's Chicago Business: Young Investigator Award Advertisement
The Young Investigator Award Recipients are featured in an advertisement in the December 12th Issue of Crain's Chicago Business. The issue is now available on news stands. The advertisement features each of the recipients along with a description of their proposals.
These early career researchers represent our commitment to put private philanthropy to work where it can have the most leverage in the fight against cancer. The Young Investigator Award addresses a difficult problem: many early career researchers find themselves in a “catch 22;” they cannot apply for support without a first data set but cannot compile results without initial funding. Young Investigators will receive $75,000 over two years to pursue independent hypotheses and develop their first results.

"I owe a great deal to the Cancer Research Foundation for giving me a head start. This financial help made the difference between my getting a fast and successful start, and my other wise struggling to obtain the necessary funds to get my research program started."Elaine Fuchs, Ph.D.
