2024-25 Team Science Award

2024-25 Team Science Award (formerly known as Individual Investigator Awards)



The Honorable Tina Brozman Foundation (“Tina’s Wish”) is requesting Letters of Intent (LOI) for the Tina’s Wish Team Science Awards for 2024-25 (formerly known as Individual Investigator Awards). Tina’s Wish awards annual grants to researchers proposing new ideas and concepts specifically for the early detection or interception of ovarian cancer.


Eligibility and Selection Criteria

  1. Applicants must be working in a school of medicine or public health or a recognized non-profit scientific research facility in the United States.
  2. The research for which support is requested should be innovative and not currently funded. Projects that exemplify/embody “collaborative science” (the collaboration between/among two or more researchers from different fields, whether within the same institution or across institutions) will be given priority in the evaluative process.
  3. Applicants must have attained the faculty position of Assistant Professor or higher (or equivalent; if at the Instructor level as an independent lab one is eligible to apply; if lab is embedded in a more senior/established lab, please apply for the Rising Star Grant).
  4. Note: Prevention studies should be focused on early cancer interception and include chemoprevention.



  1. Two-year grant
  2. The award’s annual total costs of $200,000 are inclusive of indirect costs, which should not exceed 10%. Total two-year grant funding: $400,000.
  3. The second year of funding is contingent on adequate progress during the first year.
  4. The Foundation anticipates awarding 7-10 Team Science Awards.
