Why Precision Oncology?
Precision oncology is a growing field where cancers are tested and treated according to their unique DNA fingerprint.
Understanding what might be driving a person’s cancer growth, and their likely response to specific treatments, is intended to refine diagnosis and guide ongoing care.
About the Award
The awards are open to nonprofit organizations, including patient advocacy groups, educational institutions, and officially recognized healthcare/research facilities. Three grants will be awarded in 2022 for $30,000 each. The 2022 awards will be appointed to innovative programs tackling access to biomarker testing in the following cancer types:
- Lung Cancer
- Thyroid Cancer
- Rarer Cancer Types such as pediatric cancers, sarcomas, and other solid tumors that are known to harbor rare, actionable genomic alterations. Types of genomic alterations can include KRAS, HER2, BRAF, EGFR, ALK, ROS1, NTRK gene fusions, and many more
Successful applicants will be chosen by an independent, non-Bayer review panel from the cancer community.
