Each year, medical research grants are awarded nationwide primarily to fellows and junior investigative researchers who make meaningful advancements and discoveries toward finding a cure and therapies for various types of pediatric cancer. Without the support of Bear Necessities, these cutting edge researchers stand little of chance of receiving funding, thus minimizing the chance for a break-through.
Bear Necessities has teamed up with the Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research to receive grant LOIs and applications at Proposal Central https://proposalcentral.altum.com under the title “A Collaborative Pediatric Cancer Research Awards Program”.
