Award Description:

The OCRP Pilot Award supports conceptually innovative, high-risk/high-reward research that could ultimately lead to critical discoveries or major advancements that will drive the field of ovarian cancer research forward.  Research priorities should include a testable hypothesis based on strong scientific rationale.  Successful projects should provide a catalyst to expand or modify current thinking about and/or approaches in ovarian cancer research.


Innovation and Impact are important review criteria.  Preliminary data are not required, but allowed.  Clinical trials are not allowed.
