This online application pertains to the National Foundation for Cancer Research’s (NFCR) next competitive Salisbury Award for Entrepreneurial Translational Research Pitch.

Submitted project applications for scheduled Salisbury Award Pitches will be reviewed by NFCR. Selections will be made based on the quality of responses, and submitters will be informed in a timely manner.

A maximum of 30 minutes will be allocated per project, including segue and question and answer periods, and visual presentations (such as PowerPoint) will be required.

Applications for the Salisbury Award Pitch will close two weeks before the event.
