Description

These core grants fund early phase clinical trials for cancers of all types at renowned institutions around the world.  Grants are typically 2-5 years in duration with award amounts from $200,000 to $1.5 million.

The application process has a rolling Letter of Intent (LOI) submission which is aggregated four times a year. 

  • LOI submission – As part of a Letter of Intent (LOI), researchers answer basic questions about fit with Gateway’s mission and funding criteria, and provide contact information, high level information related to the proposed project, a concise summary of the study rationale, current standard of care, an overview of specific aims/objectives, and proposed research design/approach. LOIs are pre-generated/templated applications and must be submitted before the deadline listed on our GMS to be reviewed in upcoming cycle.
  • LOI review – LOIs are assigned to scientists on Gateway’s Research and Grants Committee for peer review. The LOIs are reviewed within seven days after the LOI deadline has passed. 
  • Full Grant invitation to submit – Applicants who demonstrate that their project is in line with Gateway’s mission and are approved by the peer reviewers are invited to submit a Full Grant Application (FGA). Applicants will be given 4-5 weeks to complete a full grant application.
  • Full Grant review – Once the full grant application is submitted to Gateway, each application is reviewed by the full Research and Grants Committee at a convened meeting and given a score per the NIH scoring model to indicate funding priority. The most promising grants are presented to Gateway’s Board of Directors.
  • Full Grant approval – Gateway’s Board of Directors reviews the promising grants and determines final fiduciary approval of grant awards.
