Through its Impact Grants, the Cancer Research Institute funds projects that aim to advance defined scientific and technological goals. These awards stem from ongoing collaborations with individual donors and nonprofit organizations, and aim to address major challenges that would otherwise limit progress in cancer immunotherapy research and drug development.

Tech Impact Award

A program designed to challenge the world's leading scientists and out-of-the box thinkers to create a research plan and assemble a research team that will develop a new technology platform with the potential to transform the field of cancer immunotherapy.

Concern Foundation Program

Since 1981, the Cancer Research Institute and the Concern Foundation for Cancer Research of Beverly Hills in California have provided joint support to the laboratory of Dr. George Klein at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. Dr. Klein, who died in December 2016, was one of the world’s leading tumor biologists. He and his colleagues pioneered research into the role of the Epstein-Barr virus in causing Burkitt’s lymphoma (a type of cancer) and other diseases. Moreover, Dr. Klein’s laboratory has been a training center for a large number of outstanding scientists from Russia and other former Communist countries where scientific opportunities have been limited.

Gar Reichman Laboratory

Through the Gar Reichman Fund, CRI supports the work of Dr. Malcolm A.S. Moore, who heads the Gar Reichman Laboratory and holds the Enid A. Haupt Chair in Cell Biology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. Gar Reichman Foundation was established in 1971, in memory of Gar Reichman, to fund research on leukemia and other blood-related diseases. The foundation entrusted its funds to CRI in 1988.
