THE RIDE GRANT APPLICATION

THE RIDE GRANT APPLICATION 2019

The overarching mission of THE RIDE is to advance state of the art cancer research and treatment to serve cancer patients and families in Wisconsin and beyond. Research funding is at an all-time low and funds raised from THE RIDE help bridge this funding gap to make cancer researchers at the UW competitive at the highest level. THE RIDE began in 2016 and since then has raised close to 1 million dollars for UW cancer research and awarded money to 34 researchers, collaborative programs and students.
