AACR-MPM Oncology Charitable Foundation Transformative Cancer Research Grants Program Announces Invitation to Apply

MPM is pleased to announce that the AACR-MPM Oncology Charitable Foundation Transformative Cancer Research Grants Program is now accepting grant applications for the first time.

The grants are an exciting new funding initiative to stimulate “high-risk, high-reward” cancer research to catalyze significant scientific discoveries to advance our understanding of cancer and have a potentially transformative impact on future clinical practice.

The deadline for Letter of Intent is May 10, 2019. To learn more and apply visit the AACR website.

This novel grant mechanism is funded by MPM’s annual donations based on profits earned from its management of the UBS Oncology Impact Fund (UBS OIF) as well as certain royalty donations from the fund’s start-up portfolio companies.
