Grants of up to $40,000 to USA, Canada, and International breast cancer research teams for early detection pilot projects. Funding is intended to support research to develop innovative techniques in the areas of immunologic or biological methods of early breast cancer detection.

Since its founding in 1995, - Friends for an Earlier Breast Cancer Test has worked and focused solely on the earlier detection of breast cancer, ideally a biological test, which has the potential to reduce or prevent invasive surgery, minimize treatment and dramatically increase survival rates.

It is the hope of - Friends For An Earlier Breast Cancer Test that pilot projects will provide preliminary data that leads to applications for more substantial peer-reviewed funding. Applications are accepted from both established investigators who have funding but want to embark on a research in a new area, as well as those less experienced. In either case, the proposal should represent a new approach to the area of interest.
