Stanford Cancer Institute - Innovation Awards


The Stanford Cancer Institute’s (SCI) mission is to reduce cancer mortality and improve cancer care through comprehensive programs of cancer research, prevention, treatment, education and outreach. To achieve its mission, the leadership and members relentlessly pursue multiple strategic aims which include fostering interdisciplinary basic cancer research, translating scientific discovery into clinical research and optimal patient care, developing improved approaches to the prevention, early detection, precise diagnosis and effective treatment of cancer, and improving the cancer patient experience by using research to develop and validate innovative initiatives in patient-centered care.

In keeping with its core mission, the SCI offers Innovation Awards to support projects focused on the acceleration of basic, translational, clinical and population-based cancer research, and projects focused on specific types of cancer, such as pancreatic, breast and gynecologic cancers. 


Faculty members of the SCI or of the Stanford University community with PI Status. If the PI is not a SCI member, the LOI submission must include a letter of support from a sponsoring SCI member, who would also be a project collaborator.
