Announcing 2023 Infrastructure Grants to Support Clinical Trials

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The St. Baldrick's Foundation, the largest charity funder of childhood cancer research grants, is thrilled to announce $1.1 million in new grants to bolster pediatric cancer clinical trial enrollment. Clinical trials play a crucial role in the fight against childhood cancer. The unsung heroes who help make clinical trials happen for kids are the dedicated clinical research associates, nurses, and support staff.   

This $1.1 million supports these necessary roles to ensure more kids get treated on a clinical trial, often their best hope for a cure.  

These grants would not be possible without the support of St. Baldrick's volunteers, supporters and donors.
