Proposals Due by January 31 2015, for ThyCa’s New Thyroid Cancer Research Grants


ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association Inc. is proud to announce the 14th year of our research grants program, with grants open to researchers and institutions worldwide.

We have already awarded 47 grants totaling more than $1.3 million to researchers in 5 countries: France, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, and United States. 

ThyCa will award six research grants in 2015, three new grants plus three continuation grants. 

One new grant is for research on follicular-cell-derived thyroid cancer (papillary, follicular, anaplastic, variants). 

Another new grant is for research on medullary thyroid cancer.  

For the third grant, research on any type of thyroid cancer is eligible. This grant is named The Ric Blake Memorial Thyroid Cancer Research Grant, in memory and honor of ThyCa co-founder Ric Blake. 

Proposals are due by January 31, 2015. Click here for the grant proposal web site, which has more details and information on how to submit proposals.  

An independent expert panel of the American Thyroid Association will select the grant recipients. Our thanks to ATA for your support. 

ThyCa invites everyone to join us in our quest to find cures and new treatments for all thyroid cancer.  

Thank you to everyone who contributes to our Research Funds. Together, we’re making progress toward our dream of cures for all thyroid cancer.
