New to ISPNO 2016, The Cure Starts Now Foundation is running a US$50,000 grant competition for innovative project proposals in any area of paediatric neuro-oncology research. We are looking for truly ground-breaking ideas that combine cutting-edge scientific techniques with original thinking on how to make a difference to the outcomes of children with brain tumours. Priority will be given to proposals considered high-risk, high-reward, with applications from junior investigators welcome. A brief proposal should be submitted by 25th April, with shortlisted candidates notified by 20th May. Finalists will pitch their ideas at the ISPNO meeting on Wednesday 15th June, with the winner presented on the spot with a cheque for US$50,000. Full details and application form can be downloaded by clicking this link CSN ISPNO Snap Grant 2016. The Competition closes at midnight on Monday 25th April 20156.
