Building Capacity

The success of any nation is often reflected in the achievements of its future generation. Promising new cancer researchers and scientists in Canada are critical to ensure continued leadership and advancement in cancer research and for our health care system to be better able to meet population needs. Funding future cancer researchers and scientists is important to the Terry Fox Research Institute.

New Investigators

This program provides research operating grant support to future leaders as they develop their independent careers in cancer research. Designed to provide a single research grant to scientific and clinical investigators within the first five years of a first faculty-level appointment in Canada, New Investigators have to be sponsored and mentored by an existing Terry Fox funded program.
