Gabrielle's Angel Foundation


Internal LOI Deadline: 7/16/2019

Foundation Deadline: 8/16/2019

For over two decades, Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation has provided significant financial support to some incredibly promising physician scientists, who are applying novel and state-of-the-art techniques to address fundamental problems in the genesis and treatment of blood related cancers. Since 1996, the Foundation has committed more than $35 million in grants to over 300 junior faculty members at the nation’s leading institutions. These grants continue to be a sign of excellence and represent support for many of the most exciting new scientific ideas in blood cancer research.
Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation remains committed to funding innovative, translational proposals and to supporting promising independent early-career investigators, rather than well-established, senior scientists. Projects will be funded for a three-year period at $75,000 per year (contingent on the submission of acceptable annual progress reports). Please note that the foundation only covers 10% of indirect costs.
The Foundation seeks to support integrative research projects that explore evidence-based complementary interventions, optimize the manner in which mainstream care is delivered and improve the lives of those living with cancer, specifically the hematologic malignancies. The Foundation also seeks to support clinical trials and/or pre-clinical research which address reducing patients’ physical and emotional distress during or after cancer therapy. Proposals will be evaluated for creativity, originality and scientific rigor and those based on promising preliminary data will be favored.
Applicants should be MD and/or PhD Assistant Professors who have been in their current position for no longer than five years.
MGH is invited to submit two applications - one in the conventional medical research category and one in the integrative medical research category. 

Submit a one- to two-page Letter of Intent (LOI) to the MGH Executive Committee on Research (ECOR) via email to  In addition to your LOI, please include an NIH Biosketch.
