2020 MIB Agents OutSmarting Osteosarcoma Grant
MIB Agents is a nationwide 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the mission to Make It Better for children with osteosarcoma, bone cancer. Each year a grant of $100,000 is awarded to a project that will focus on moving research forward for osteosarcoma patients. Proposals may be for a new project or an ongoing larger project for which results can be expected in twelve months. This year, the top three finalists for this grant will be required to present their proposal at FACTOR 2020.
At 12 months, results must be made available to share- regardless of the outcome of the research. The recipient must be available to present work underway and completed at the FACTOR Conference 2021, and may use grant funds for travel and accommodations to FACTOR conference. PI must also provide MIB Agents with a one page layman summary of outcomes to share with the community via website. Grant may not be used for the formation of a new organization, used for planning stages of research, or for any indirect costs.
