Stand Up To Cancer is a new initiative created to accelerate groundbreaking cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives. SU2C's goal is to bring together the best and the brightest in the cancer community, encouraging collaboration instead of competition. By galvanizing the entertainment industry, SU2C creates awareness and builds broad public support for this effort.
Stand Up to Cancer's unique funding model, developed with the help of prominent cancer researchers, encourages collaboration and innovation through two new types of scientific grant.
Dream Team grants are awarded to multi-institutional groups of scientists who work collaboratively, rather than competitively, to develop new treatments quickly in order to save lives now. To learn more about SU2C's first five Dream Teams, please click here.
Innovative Research Grants support groundbreaking cancer research projects that are high-risk but could also be high-impact, and have the potential to significantly affect patient care. To learn more about the first recipients of SU2Cs Innovative Research Grants, click here.
