An important priority of POGO Research continues to be expansion of research capacity in the identified areas of interest. Consistent with the original mandate of POGO Research, training opportunities build a community of childhood cancer researchers and provide a context to share and enhance tools and methodologies developed to investigate the identified aspects of childhood cancer. The educational activities also provide an expert human resource, responsive to investigators seeking advice, consultation, and expertise in the design and development of research projects.
POGO Research supports multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional, intramural, and extramural research via a number of funding opportunities for trainees and research grants.
Project Funding Grant
This year, POGO is offering a Project Funding Grant intended to support research evaluating needs and/or developing scalable interventions to improve supportive care for children with cancer, survivors, and their families. Research supported through this funding opportunity is expected to demonstrate how results can inform the development of interventions to improve supportive care.
The total amount available for this funding opportunity is $200,000. Individual projects may receive up to $100,000.
Research Fellowship Program
Unfortunately, POGO’s research fellowship will not be offered for the 2022/23 grant cycle.
POGO remains committed to fostering research and education in childhood cancer through other initiatives, including Project Funding Grants.
