The Geoffrey Ogram Memorial Research Grant (GOMRG) supports advancement in lung cancer research programs that are anywhere in the continuum from basic, high impact discovery to translational work of direct relevance to the clinic and beyond. The goal of the GOMRG program is to provide a mechanism for scientists to study innovations and accelerate the application of new knowledge relating to the early detection of lung cancer and the etiology of lung cancer in different demographics and populations. Applications are encouraged from, but not limited to, the areas of biomedical, clinical, health services, social, and population health research. Guidelines can be found hereEn Francais

The overall goal of the GOMRG is to reduce the burden of lung cancer and optimize patient care. It is not intended to support awareness programs and is not intended to solely support research infrastructure.

In 2024, up to two (2) grants of $25,000 CAD each will be awarded. Funding will be provided to support the direct costs of a defined research program, including supplies, expenses*, wages and equipment associated with the proposed work. While wages may form part of the expenses, this grant is not intended as a fellowship. Indirect costs** are not eligible expenses.

Please note that this research funding opportunity is intended to support projects with demonstrated financial need. Funding will be allocated based on the level of need demonstrated by applicants, as determined by the adjudication committee. We prioritize equitable distribution of resources and encourage applicants to be transparent in their submissions regarding their financial need.
