Cancer

The Cancer Research Fund enables individuals to support cancer research at the National Cancer Institute (NCI).

Cancer

The Dean R. O'Neill Renal Cell Cancer Research Fund supports a Fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Richard Childs at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) to explore treatments for renal cell carcinoma.

Cancer

The Dr. Edward T. Rancic Memorial Fund for Cancer Research supports a Fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Richard Childs at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) to explore treatments for renal cell carcinoma.

Cancer

Lung-MAP is an umbrella protocol which contains a screening component and multiple independently conducted and analyzed treatment sub-studies. The overarching hypothesis is that the umbrella master protocol will establish genomic screening for a large population of previously treated Non-small cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) patients and evaluate targeted therapies (or combinations) in biomarker-driven sub-studies and immunotherapy combinations in patients previously exposed to standard checkpoint inhibitor therapy and lead to regulatory approval of efficacious regimens.

Cancer

The Stephen J. Solarz Memorial Fund supports immunotherapy research in the laboratory of David Schrump, M.D. at the Center for Cancer Research of the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Funds are used to provide international fellowship opportunities to aspiring post-doctorate scientists and researchers in the field of cancer.

Cancer


The Partnership for Accelerating Cancer Therapies (PACT) is a five-year public-private research collaboration totaling $215 million launched by the National Institutes of Health, the FNIH and 12 leading pharmaceutical companies as part of the Cancer Moonshot. PACT will initially focus on efforts to identify, develop and validate robust biomarkers — standardized biological markers of disease and treatment response — to advance new immunotherapy treatments that harness the immune system to attack cancer. The partnership will be managed by the FNIH.
