The RTFCCR / SAKK Research Grant

Swiss Group for Clinical Cancer Research (SAKK) and the Rising Tide Foundation for Clinical Cancer Research (RTFCCR) have joined forces for this unique opportunity to attract high quality clinical studies focusing on confirming the need of treatment.

Additional treatments can sometimes be more harmful than beneficial and are costly. Unnecessary treatments with undesirable side effects should therefore be avoided as it impairs patients’ quality of life significantly.  

We call upon all investigators to submit clinical research proposals for patient-centered clinical trials aimed at addressing this critical question: Do we overtreat our patients? The amount available for this call for proposals is CHF 1 million. Max. 3 projects will be funded. More Information can be found here.  


Application Deadline: October 2, 2017

Research proposals must be submitted through proposalCENTRAL. The winning proposals will be announced in the 2nd quarter of 2018
