In 2013, CureSearch will again provide up to $2 million to hospitals for the enrollment of children in clinical trials. This year’s funding will be awarded through CureSearch’s Clinical Trials Advancement Awards which are available to US-based hospitals who are enrolling infants, children, adolescents, and young adults in Phase I, Phase II, and Phase III therapeutic clinical trials.
Clinical Trials Advancement Awards range from $5,000 to $40,000 and are based on a set criteria detailed in the grant application, but include balancing the number of enrollments with a hospital’s involvement in the CureSearch Walk.
Hospitals can begin applying for funding in May, 2013 and award notices will be distributed in December, 2013.
