Bladder Cancer Young Investigator Awards

What are the Young Investigator Awards?

The $50,000 Young Investigator Awards fund researchers in basic, translational, clinical, epidemiologic, bio-engineering or any other scientific or research field, who are working in a research environment capable of supporting transformational bladder cancer research. These awards are offered to inspire more early career investigators to join the bladder cancer scientific community. We believe that today’s investment in promising researchers will result in tomorrow’s improved outcomes for bladder cancer patients and those who love them.

Who can apply for an award?

Applications are open to researchers and clinicians across the United States and Canada. Given BCAN’s position in the bladder cancer community, as well as our relationship with the key members of the research community, we aim to attract the “best and brightest” to compete for these Young Investigator Awards.

The Young Investigator Awards are just part of Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network’s (BCAN’s) commitment to advancing bladder cancer research that saves lives. From our inception, BCAN has cultivated strong partnerships with leading members of the bladder cancer medical community and we encourage collaboration for the study of bladder cancer and its prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment. Additionally, BCAN has also funded millions of dollars in bladder cancer research grants.
