This year the Rising Tide Foundation for Clinical Cancer Research (RTFCCR) is celebrating its 10-year anniversary. In parallel, Swiss Cancer Research (SCR) is having a 30-year celebration. To mark these milestones, we are launching a joint call for proposals to fund a jubilee award. This award seeks to provide funding to support the creation of a patient-directed protocol for a clinical trial on a topic that aligns with the focus areas of RTFCCR and the mission of both organizations.
The purpose of the award is to increase the awareness and show the benefits of having patients involved at an early stage in clinical trial design, with the goal of making a significant difference to cancer patients. Priority will be given to trials proposed by an active patient group having a clinical research question, they would like to take forward to clinical trial.
