Now Accepting Proposals

We are currently seeking proposals for research projects that use computational omics to
dramatically impact the battle against cancer and reduce the time it takes for research
outcomes to be used effectively in a clinical environment.

Up to two grants worth $200,000 each will be awarded.

Completed proposals are due by August 17, 2016.

Why Compute the Cure?

Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for 8.2 million deaths in 2012. Within the next two decades, the number of new cases per year is expected to grow from 14 million to 22 million annually.1

As technology plays an increasingly important role in cancer research, the NVIDIA Foundation is in a unique position to help. By leveraging our employees, partners, technology and financial resources, our goal is to accelerate the fight against cancer.
