Grants to New York nonprofit organizations and governmental organizations for breast cancer research. Funding is intended to support innovative research projects that explore new approaches and methods in the treatment, prevention, biology, detection or screening, survivorship, causation, and cure of breast cancer.

Any investigative approach appropriate to the application topic may be pursued, including, but not limited to, basic, translational, clinical, demographic, mapping, epidemiological, environmental, behavioral, or psychosocial research. 

Projects are self-contained research projects (not smaller components of larger projects). Responsive applications include the following projects:

  • Highly speculative, exploratory, or high-risk – may not have preliminary data, but have the potential for high scientific payoff
  • Application or development of state-of-the-art technologies, tools or resources for breast cancer
  • Research
  • Innovative or developmental – focus on exceptionally promising topics and have some pilot data, but not yet sufficiently mature to compete successfully for funding for a full-scale study
  • Testing new hypotheses based on research grounded in a non-breast cancer research area

- The application does not propose support for a research center
- The application does not propose support for a Phase III clinical trial
