Current Grant Programs

Program Project Development Grant
Launched in 2004, this research program provides funds for large ovarian cancer research projects that involve several investigators within one institution or collaborations between groups in multiple institutions. The grant is for investigators seeking to develop program project grant applications for submission to peer-review funding agencies (e.g. NCI, RO1, SPORE, DOD). Support of $300,000 annually for three years will be awarded to the institution(s) in which the recipients will conduct the research.

Liz Tilberis Early Career Award
Launched in December 2000, the Liz Tilberis Early Career Award (formerly called the Liz Tilberis Scholars Award) is for junior faculty with a strong commitment to an investigative career in ovarian cancer research. These awards support a substantial time commitment to research and academic endeavors in ovarian cancer. Each grantee will receive a three-year grant of $150,000 per year. The program honors OCRF’s late president, Liz Tilberis.

Ann Schreiber Mentored Investigator Award
The Ann Schreiber Mentored Investigator Award (formerly the Ann Schreiber Research Training Programs of Excellence Award) provides funding for trainees who are working under the supervision of a mentor who is a recognized leader in the field of ovarian cancer research. Applicants must be clinical fellows (Gynecologic Oncology, Medical Oncology), or post-doctoral fellows. Candidates for this program must have an MD or a PhD degree. The award provides a total of $75,000 to be used over one or two years, and will encourage the recipient’s research career in the field of ovarian cancer. This grant is named in honor of Ann Schreiber, in whose memory OCRF was founded.
