The V Foundation’s mission has always been a focused one: to save lives by finding cures for cancer.
Since awarding the first grant in 1994, The V Foundation has funded 540 grants to the brightest physicians and scientists as they pioneer techniques to make breakthroughs in cancer research. By investing in promising people and projects, the Foundation continues to make great strides in unraveling the mysteries of cancer.
Grants are selected by a Scientific Advisory Committee through a highly competitive process. Only cancer research projects with the most potential are funded. Thus, grant recipients funded by The V Foundation have excellent reputations within the scientific community.
The V Foundation awards three types of grants: The V Scholar Grant, The V Foundation Grants in Translational Cancer Research and Designated Grants. Scientists who receive these grants often receive additional funding and produce results which enable them to move from the lab into clinical trials. The cures for cancer become less mysterious with each and every breakthrough.
