  • Clearly state that they have both independent research projects and independent resources

 Purpose and Award Details

For over two decades, Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation has provided significant financial support to some incredibly promising physician scientists who are applying novel and state-of-the-art techniques to address fundamental problems in the genesis and treatment of blood related cancers. These grants continue to be a sign of excellence and represent support for many of the most exciting new scientific ideas in blood cancer research. The Foundation wishes to fund innovative and insightful medical research on the hematologic malignancies.  Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation remains committed to funding innovative, translational proposals and to supporting promising independent early-career investigators, rather than well-established, senior scientists.
