Request a Grant Writer

Grants of $75,000 to USA, Canada, and International individual investigators for pilot projects in any area related to Ovarian cancer research. Priority is given to proposals that are multidisciplinary, innovative, show potential for translational research, and those that may lead to independently funded investigations. Funding is intended to support direct costs such as salary support, materials, supplies, consumables, travel costs for scientific meetings, and other expenses.

Investigators often struggle to find funding for innovative approaches to scientific questions because their new ideas may not yet be in the scientific mainstream. Each year, Rivkin Center supports multiple pilot studies to pave the way for new avenues of ovarian cancer research and to expand the understanding of the disease. 

Pilot Study Program awards will be allocated based on scientific merit. Pilot Study Program awards will support investigator-initiated projects in all areas of ovarian cancer research. In addition, projects designed to analyze data from already funded clinical trials will be considered.
