The Lewin Fund's scientific advisors are world-renowned leaders in women's cancer research. They review proposals consistent with the mission and priorities of The Lewin Fund.
The Lewin Fund to Fight Women’s Cancers invites novel laboratory research proposals and clinical investigations pertaining to women’s cancers from investigators who aim to make critical headway in areas such as tumor biology, novel molecular targets, companion diagnostics, improvement in quality of life and hereditary cancer genetics. Our Scientific Advisors will review proposals consistent with the mission and priorities of The Lewin Fund.
The Lewin Fund runs a continuous grant cycle and uses a two-step application and peer review process. Letters of Intent (LOIs) undergo a rigorous peer review by our Scientific Advisors. We request that all LOI proposals be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. After LOI review, applicants who fulfill the mission of the The Lewin Fund and pass scientific advisory review will be invited to submit full applications. The awards will be publicly announced after final approval
The Lewin Fund's monetary grant of up to $50,000 per year is typically awarded for two years and will apply only to direct costs. These grants are awarded on a yearly basis contingent upon the review of the first progress report and recommendation of the Scientific Advisors and the executive director of The Lewin Fund.
We take the review process seriously and are committed to our grantees and offer transparent and confidential interactions with all potential grantees. Deliberations, written critiques of proposals and other materials are kept private during the proposal process. Each reviewer must sign a confidentiality and conflict-of-interest statement.
We welcome and encourage our grantees' feedback because we know that our success and impact depends upon strong, mutually-beneficial relationships with all of our partners.
