In the past two years, The ChadTough Foundation and Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation awarded more than $3.3 million to fund DIPG-specific research projects.
We are committed to building the most comprehensive grant program for funding DIPG research. To achieve this goal, we offer three types of grants:
Research: supporting the work of existing DIPG researchers by providing funding for hypothesis-driven research projects. The proposed research must represent an innovative approach to a major challenge in DIPG research. The funded projects must have the potential to lead to groundbreaking discoveries in the field, and transform our understanding of the tumorigenesis process or our ability to treat or detect DIPG.
New Investigator: funding newly independent DIPG researchers in establishing new DIPG research labs – OR – funding established researchers (who have not previously conducted brain tumor research) to encourage them to start DIPG research.
Fellowship: designed to encourage outstanding scientists to choose a career involving DIPG research.
