My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Cancer Research Institute, Inc., New York, NY, USA
I and my extended group have been the recipients of a ”matching grant”, awarded jointly by the Cancer Research Institute and the Concern Foundation, Los Angeles, over several years. This grant was used to support the work of 10-15 fellows each year, working in the areas of cancer cell genetics, tumor virology and tumor immunology. This generous grant has given us an unparalleled opportunity to pursue the research with a dynamic group of research fellows, postdoctorals and guest investigators. With the help of this grant we could keep talented young researchers who would have been otherwise forced into industry or other applied work.
The Cancer Research Institute has my greater admiration for the highly efficient, non-bureaucratic, talent- and problem-oriented support that characterizes their fellowship program.
