Research Grants

Per cancer death, stomach cancer receives the least amount of federal funding of any cancer and there is very little research being conducted on stomach cancer for a variety of reasons, including a lack of funding and a limited number of doctors specializing in stomach cancer. DDF strives to increase the treatment options available for stomach cancer patients by directly funding stomach cancer research.

By offering grants for basic, translational and clinical research in stomach cancer to scientists and clinicians at various career levels, Debbie's Dream Foundation: Curing Stomach Cancer is in the fight against the disease by advancing the field to make progress toward the goal of increasing survival.

We are now accepting applications for our 2016 research funding opportunities. This year, our research investment will be $200,000, representing a 100 percent increase over last year's investment.

Debbie's Dream Foundation: Curing Stomach Cancer is offering two research grants totalling $200,000 for the 2015-2016 grant cycle administered by AACR as follows:
