Fund a Research Project

Annual and periodic e-newsletters reporting on research milestones, fundraising events and patient resources. This communication is a great way to stay updated on DTRF’s efforts.

This event will bring together a diverse group of scientists including the brightest minds in desmoid tumor research, human genetics, drug development and related fields. The workshop will facilitate an enthusiastic and collegial atmosphere as researchers across disciplines and institutions collaborate around the shared goal of improving treatments for desmoid tumor patients, establishing research priorities and moving the field forward toward a cure.

Level 1: $2,500

Level 2: $5,000

Level 3: $7,500

A full day event for patients and caregivers, where attendees connect and participate in informative lectures and roundtables on desmoid tumors. This meeting takes place in late fall in Philadelphia.

Level 1: $2,500

Level 2: $10,000

Level 3: $15,000

A peer-reviewed grant to collect preliminary data. These projects usually precede multi-year grant submissions.

Level 1: $5,000

Level 2: $10,000

Level 3: $15,000

A desmoid tumor research grant in basic science or a clinical trial at one of the world’s top cancer research centers.

Level 1: $10,000

Level 2: $25,000

Level 3: $50,000

This multi- year project is being conducted across multiple institutions and researchers. It involves screening 100,000 drug agents and testing successful agents on cell cultures and mouse models. This project is expected to rapidly identify a multidrug regimen using agents that are already FDA-approved for patient use, which can then safely be tested for efficacy in patients.

Level 1: $25,000

Level 2: $50,000

Level 3: $75,000

Level 4: $100,000

Level 5: $150,000
