The research proposed for funding must be focused on the preclinical application of TTFields in cancer and may be basic or translational in nature.

More Details

Novocure and the AACR are proud to announce the inaugural AACR-Novocure Tumor Treating Fields Research Grants. These grants represent a joint effort to promote and support innovative research focused on Tumor Treating Fields (TTFields), which are intermediate frequency, low intensity, alternating electric fields that disrupt cell division in cancer cells.

Opportunity Focus Areas:

  • Medicine

Required Languages


Eligible Countries


Program Period

2 years.

Eligibility Requirements (Criteria)

  • Applications will be accepted from independent investigators who are affiliated with an institution that already has the InovitroTM TTFields Lab Bench System (*please see the list of approved institutions on page 17 of the Program Guidelines document)
  • Employees or subcontractors of a U.S. government entity or for-profit private industry are not eligible. Employees or subcontractors of a U.S. government entity or for‐profit private industry may serve as Collaborators, but no grant funds may be directed towards these individuals.
  • Investigators may submit only one application for the AACR-Novocure Tumor Treating Fields Research Grants but may concurrently apply for other AACR grants. However, applicants are expected to accept the first grant they are awarded. Individuals may accept and hold only one AACR grant at a time.
  • Any individual who currently holds an active AACR grant may not apply. Past AACR grantees may apply if they complied with all progress and financial report requirements.

  •  Applications are invited from researchers affiliated with institutions* that already have the InovitroTM TTFields Lab Bench System from Novocure (*please see the list of approved institutions on page 17 of the Program Guidelines document).
