About us

The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation funds early career cancer researchers who have the energy, drive and creativity to become leading innovators in their fields. We identify the best young scientists in the nation and support them through six award programs.

Damon Runyon awards give young scientists:
  • Freedom to follow their own ideas, explore new paths and take risks
  • A prestigious endorsement that attracts further funding, advances their careers and accelerates their research
  • Guaranteed financial support, sparing them hours applying for grants

100% of all direct donations fund cancer research. Our administrative costs are paid through our endowment and Damon Runyon Broadway Tickets.
