Geoffrey Beene Cancer Research Center: Geoffrey Beene Grant Awards

The Geoffrey Beene Cancer Research Center annually funds the top research proposals submitted by Memorial Sloan Kettering faculty members whose research supports the field of human oncology, human cancer pathogenesis, cancer biology, and cancer genetics, which together span the range of research from basic laboratory investigations to translational clinical studies, and from the development of new therapies to their evaluation in clinical trials.

All applications are reviewed by a committee, which consists of the Geoffrey Beene Cancer Research Center Executive Committee and other selected faculty members. Grant recipients may be awarded a second year of support based on the progress made and findings after their first year of funding.
