Put down that pumpkin spice latte and free up those hands, because we’ve got great news and you’re going to want to clap when you hear it!

Announcing the 2015 Infrastructure Grants
You’ve done it again!

Today, we are proud to announce the 2015 St. Baldrick’s Infrastructure Grants, totaling $2 million awarded to 33 institutions across the United States.

These grants provide the bedrock that makes research successful. Your hard work helps institutions hire the staff and get the resources to run clinical trials, giving kids with cancer — now and in the future — a chance to live long and healthy lives.
