Enrollment on a clinical trial is often a child’s best hope for a cure.
Clinical trials offer children in treatment hope for a better future with fewer side effects. Clinical trials also help scientists to improve upon the standard treatments of today, making significant strides towards more effective and less toxic cures for children now and in the future.
This is it! You — St. Baldrick’s donors and participants — have poured your passion into funding childhood cancer research, even in difficult times like these. And because of you, today we all celebrate the biggest batch of new grants of the year.
This new investment of $12.9 million brings the total granted by St. Baldrick’s for research since 2005 to more than $300 million.
The 53 grants include new funding for 18 Research Grants, 5 Supportive Care Research Grants, 9 St. Baldrick’s Scholars, and 1 International Scholar from India. Also receiving new funding for projects already underway are 7 St. Baldrick’s Scholars, 2 International Scholar from Kenya, 8 team science projects (Consortium grants), 1 St. Baldrick’s Innovation Award and 1 Strategic Initiative.
