Each organization is seeking proposals for projects that leverage computational omics to dramatically impact the battle against cancer and reduce the time it takes for research outcomes to be used effectively in a clinical environment.
Up to $2,000,000 in collective funding is available.
> Under its Compute the Cure initiative, the NVIDIA Foundation will award one project, at up to $200,000. For more information and to download this application, click here.

Why Compute the Cure?
Cancer claims more than 8.2 million lives globally each year. Within the next two decades, this number is expected to reach 13 million per year, as the number of new cases per year grows from 14 million to 22 million annually.1
With numbers like these, cancer has affected everyone in some way, including our employees and their families.
As technology plays an increasingly important role in cancer research relies, the NVIDIA Foundation is in a unique position to help. By leveraging our employees, partners, technology and financial resources, our goal is to accelerate the fight against cancer.
