Pitch an Idea


Each year, the Greenberg Bladder Cancer Institute awards several grants of $35,000 to $50,000. Up to two of our awards are dedicated to supporting the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network’s Young Investigator Awards program.

We seek project ideas from investigators both within the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and from outside institutions in the U.S. and abroad. High priority is given to innovative projects with potential clinical impact.

Grants are awarded in the following areas of bladder cancer research:

  • Genetics
  • Immunotherapy
  • Biomarkers
  • Targeted therapies
  • Patient care, prevention and screening
  • Pioneering studies — a flexible category that supports “out of the box” ideas
