Young Investigator Award

Thank you to those who applied for the 2024 Young Investigator Awards. Applications are now closed for 2024 Funding. 

The Young Investigator Award promotes and recognizes clinical and translational research that advances innovative ideas and concepts designed to improve health outcomes through advances in the delivery of cancer-related care. This year, two awards will be given for up to $25,000 each for one year, beginning April 1 of the award year and concluding March 31 of the following year.

Two Young Investigator Awards will be made again this year: one traditional award and one dedicated to a specific topic.

SSO is pleased to offer a second, topic-specific SSO Young Investigator Award supported by a grant from the Appendix Cancer Pseudomyxoma Peritonei Research Foundation. Proposals related to appendix cancer, pseudomyxoma peritonei, peritoneal surface malignancies/peritoneal carcinomatosis (as related to appendix cancer and/or pseudomyxoma peritonei), and/or HIPEC as a treatment for appendix cancer/pseudomyxoma peritonei will be accepted.
