Florida Matching Grants Partnership

In 2010, Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure partnered with the state-funded Florida Center for Brain Tumor Research on an unprecedented research matching grant program.  Dollars raised at our Florida Brain Cancer 5k were matched by the state of Florida for a total of $325,000 in brain cancer research grants to three institutions:  University of Florida, University of West Florida and University of Central Florida. 

We continue to build the partnership in 2011.  This year, the grants program will fund innovative basic, translational or clinical research designed to improve the treatment of brain tumors. Proposals will be reviewed by an independent panel of brain tumor experts selected by Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure from institutions outside the state of Florida.
