VeloSano grants two different types of awards. VeloSano Pilot Awards provide seed funding for cancer research activities being performed across the Cleveland Clinic enterprise. Utilizing a competitive application and peer-review selection process, the goal of the VeloSano Pilot Awards is to support projects with a high likelihood of leading to successful, future extramural grant funding.
VeloSano Impact Awards are distributed by the VeloSano Medical Chairman to satisfy the critical needs of Cleveland Clinic’s cancer program. Whether a piece of equipment, advanced technology, recruitment or laboratory expenses, the VeloSano Impact Awards are to address strategic priorities that will advance the investigational abilities in the area of cancer research. These awards are meant to ensure that our caregivers and patients have access to the best talent and technology available.
In eight years, VeloSano participants & supporters generated nearly $30 million which has been used to fund more than 200 cancer research projects. Below, view a snapshot of these projects funded since 2014.
