Grants — Cancer and Cell Aging Platform

The Cancer and Cell Aging Platform awards Team Science Grants and Pilot Grants to support innovative discovery science.

Team Science Grants foster new collaborations of scientists from diverse fields to drive innovative, cutting-edge research focused on understanding biological processes that contribute to human disease. Multidisciplinary teams of investigators challenge current paradigms and use collective expertise across Mayo Clinic to drive new insight. This approach to research is typically not funded through traditional governmental grants, which generally expect incremental research progression.

Pilot Grants provide seed funding for highly innovative and imaginative ideas or concepts that lay the foundation for future team science projects.
