Pilot Grant Program

In 2021, two Pilot Grant Programs—the UMass Cancer Center Pilot Project Program and the Population and Quantitative Health Sciences Cancer-Focused Pilot Project Program—were established to promote exciting science and innovation in cancer research at UMass Chan Medical School. The goal of the programs is to provide support for cancer discoveries at their earliest phase and facilitate further development of projects to a stage when they can obtain external support.

These programs are fostering deeper connections between our scientists, dissolving silos, and creating a fertile environment for nurturing discoveries—with the ultimate goal of bringing treatments to patients.
