Terry Fox New Frontiers Program Project Grants (PPGs)

The Terry Fox New Frontiers Program Project Grants is a long‐standing program involving the best cancer researchers in Canada. These programs support Canadian research teams exploring new frontiers in cancer research (i.e., breakthrough and transformative biomedical, clinical and translational research which may form the basis for innovative cancer prevention, diagnosis and/or treatment).

A Request for Applications (RFA) is issued annually.The 2015 competition information can be found on the Terry Fox New Frontiers Program (2015) page.

Please refer to the table below for the current list of Terry Fox New Frontiers Program Project grants. Detailed information for each project can be found in the Canadian Research Information System (CRIS) database.
