Rally Research is Making an Impact
In Rally’s first decade, we established a dual peer review process that ensures we fund the most promising research initiatives. Rally provides critical seed funding to all levels of researchers, including young investigators and fellows. Of the 217 research projects Rally has funded,
28 percent have progressed on to clinical trials. Sixty-nine percent of all Rally-funded research projects have been published in journals of books and 59 percent of Rally’s funded projects have advanced to receive federal funding. We are so proud of our researchers!
Less than 4% of the NCI’s budget goes to support pediatric research. Receiving federal funding is very competitive. In a random survey of 39 Rally-funded researchers, nearly two out of three researchers indicated that their Rally-funded projects advanced to federal funding, a critical milestone for any research project.
An impressive 3 out of 4 Rally-funded researchers presented their discoveries at scientific conferences across the nation and around the globe.
Rally believes in investing in the very best ideas. We fund all levels of research, encouraging collaboration, and giving both young minds and seasoned professionals a chance to flourish.
