The best ideas happen when the right people work together.

WORLD CLASS COLLABORATION

BACKGROUND

At Curebound, collaboration is everything.

Our funding model engineers collaboration across multiple disciplines and institutions. We provide early phase, follow-on and clinical trial funding to cross-institutional research teams that bring together physician scientists, clinical researchers, and basic-science researchers to work in partnership on a specific challenge in cancer research.

This combination of bringing clinical data to early, basic discovery research is unique to Curebound, and creates collaborations that otherwise would not exist.

CUREBOUND GRANTS

Curebound funds three types of cancer research grants:

Discovery Grants

• First time seed grants for high-risk, high-reward, collaborative, translational research. Ideas are innovative and in the early phases, where smaller grants of $250,000 can make a big impact in advancing research
• Discovery Grants are one-time grants and will be determined by the peer-review process established by Padres Pedal the Cause and implemented by the six beneficiary institutions.

Targeted Grants

• Larger gift of $500,000 for 1-year with the option to re-apply for additional funding in subsequent years, that provide follow on funding to projects that continue the investigators previous line of research.
• The SAB will also consider targeted funding for major public health and population studies as they align with Curebound investment pillars.

Cure Prizes

• Innovative, game changing, multidisciplinary projects that receive major funding of $1,000,000, administered over multiple years.
• Cure Prize concepts will be determined collectively by the SAB and will seek to foster collaborations with and invoke matching funds from corporate industry partners, private investors, major federal grants and grants from other foundations.
