Cancer Research Society (CRS)
CRS has committed to supporting pancreatic cancer research through a CRS/ Pancreatic Cancer Canada/John van Haastrecht operating grant of up to $60,000 per year for two years.
This grant is exciting. The best proposal for research relating to the detection, as well as the treatment, of pancreatic cancer put forth from across Canada will receive funding. The best proposal will be chosen by a peer-review committee made up of 9 to 15 Canadian and/or international scientists having expertise in the appropriate domains of cancer research. This grant will fund high level research toward making a difference in pancreatic cancer outcomes.

Founded in 1945, the Cancer Research Society (CRS) is a national not-for-profit organization whose sole mission is to fund cancer research exclusively and to offer seed money for the most promising original ideas, projects and researchers across Canada.
CRS supports the best Canadian researchers in hospitals and universities across Canada, funding more than 68 million dollars in research over the last 10 years. Through a national competition where only the best proposals receive support, a scientific committee, comprised of peers, selects the projects to be funded.
Through its support of basic and environment-cancer research, CRS is working towards improving prevention and treatment of this disease, with the hope of discovering a cure for the different forms of cancer.
