crf’s chicago chapter
Introducing the Cancer Research Foundation’s next “chapter” in its long and storied history of helping researchers gain ground in the fight against cancer. The Foundation has reorganized the way it raises money and makes grants, dividing its current operation into a parent organization and a new Chicago Chapter.
The most important goal of this reorganization is to allow the CRF to grow the Young Investigator Award, our most important grant-making vehicle. The Young Investigator Award was formally established more than 25 years ago to support young cancer researchers as they establish their careers and build their first data sets, allowing them to compete for major nationally funded research grants.
