Grand Challenge is a unique approach to beating cancer sooner

This award is intended to transform the cancer research field. We want to see proposals for bold, innovative solutions to the challenges we have set and to see evidence that applicants have actively sought out new collaborations. Ultimately, we are looking for the best teams with the best ideas to address the challenges, but we would also anticipate that proposals will drive global collaboration and the bringing together of diverse expertise in a way that is not already happening.

Dr Rick Klausner, Scientific Advisory Panel Chair
