The Pablove Foundation
External Deadline:
Opportunity Information:

The Pablove Foundation is a national nonprofit that invests in underfunded cutting-edge pediatric cancer research and improves the lives of kids with cancer through the arts. 

The foundation invites applications for its Seed Grants program, which provides funds to conduct innovative, cutting-edge investigations, with preferences going toward less common childhood cancers. Seed grants aim to advance the work of researchers to qualify for larger grants, federal funding, and clinical trials. Grants are designed for researchers currently in a clinical fellowship, postdoctoral training, or within five years of completing training.  

The foundation supports research in the following broad areas: mechanisms of disease, genetics, preclinical models, biomarkers and surrogate markers, prognostic factors, diagnosis, innovative clinical therapeutic trials, minimal residual disease detection, treatment, supportive care and prevention, and amelioration of long-term effects of therapy.

Grants provide $50,000 in direct costs over one year. In addition, projects that focus on Opsoclonus-Myoclonus Syndrome (OMS) will be considered, with grants of up to $100,000 over two years to be awarded in this area. 

To be eligible, applicants must have an MD or PhD equivalent degree. Multiple LOI submissions for the same principal investigator, even if for different grant opportunities, are not allowed. Multiple applications are permitted from a single institution. 

Letters of intent are due July 1, 2024, at 5:00 p.m. ET. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application, due October 8, 2024. 

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Pablove Foundation website.
