To focus our efforts and increase our impact, we have designed two umbrella focus areas under the themes Improved Patient Outcomes and Science of Prevention and Detection.
To highlight our sense of urgency, we expect that clinical research projects should result in patient impact within 5 years and are expected to start within 6 months of approval unless otherwise agreed.
We are one of several players in this area, and we share objectives with a broad range organizations worldwide. We partner with them in order to leverage resources to accelerate the improvement of patient treatment options and quality of life everywhere.
To keep our efforts focused and increase our impact, we have developed two umbrella themes: Improved Patient Outcomes and Science of Prevention and Detection.
These approaches should have a high probability to reach patients globally and aim to achieve:
• Improved disease control
• Reduced side effects
Of special interest are clinical trials or correlative intervention studies focusing on:
• Geriatric oncology
• Repurposing of drugs
• Combination therapies
• Overcoming resistance
• Treatment de-escalation
• Biomarker development
This is an important emerging field of science that may improve quality of life for cancer patients and, at times, may also improve the length of life for such patients.
Of special interest are:
There is an unmet need to produce evidence on whether or not an approach is being adopted by clinicians and patients, especially with so many patients being treated with oral medication and in outpatient clinics.
Whether you are an academic institution interested in applying for a grant or another not-for-profit organization keen to tackle critical cancer related issues together, we want to hear from you.
We receive LOI’s all year round and do not have specific deadlines. Once you have submitted your LOI you will receive further information regarding the timing and next steps. Our board meetings take place in May, August, and December. The evaluation period is between 3 and 6 months.
If your project meets our funding criteria, we will contact you and extend an invitation for you to submit a full grant application for further consideration. If you are uncertain about the eligibility of your proposal, please email us at email@example.com before beginning an application.
A selection of current projects and their descriptions, explaining how they fit in our funding program, are available here.
All LOIs must be submitted in accordance with the submission guidelines via proposalCENTRAL
Establish a user account to submit a grant application. If you have an existing user account with proposalCENTRAL, simply log in to the platform with your details.
To begin a LOI, select "Grant Opportunities". Find "Rising Tide Foundation for Clinical Cancer Research". Alternatively, you can find our grant offerings at the following links:
Also, we now have links that will specifically go to the Clinical Cancer Research program here
Choose your program and click the "Apply Now" link to download the LOI template from proposalCENTRAL.
Complete all fields in the application form and in the provided template(s). Please note that the LOI application for RTFCCR is limited to 5 pages, and cited publications and supporting documents are not included in this page number limit. For Freedom in Practice, follow the guidance on characters in the LOI template. All requested documents must be uploaded in PDF format. They must be in 10 point and Open Sans font.
For more information or in case of technical issues, kindly refer to the FAQ section on proposalCENTRAL or contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For any project-related queries, applicants should refer to our Programmatic Guidelines, which can be downloaded from proposalCENTRAL.
Only applicants with LOIs deemed most meritorious and aligned with our grant programs’ focus will be invited to submit full applications. Instructions for the submission of full applications are provided after the LOI evaluation.
Our objective is to accelerate progress to improve the lives of people living with cancer today and bring forward the day when a cure for cancer is finally realized. Find some inspiring stories right here.
