Maine Cancer Foundation is pleased to announce a Request for Proposals on Colorectal Cancer Screenings in Maine. 

Funding Criteria:

Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related death in Maine. Screening for colorectal cancer can help prevent the disease by detecting precancerous cells or growths (polyps) in the colon and rectum so they can be removed. It also can detect colorectal cancer at an early stage, when treatment is most successful in lowering the risk of dying from colon cancer.

Maine Cancer Foundation is now accepting applications for evidence-based interventions to increase the number of and improve the quality of colorectal cancer screening rates in our state.

Cancer researchers will have easier access to biological samples used to conduct leading-edge research that may lead to new cancer treatments thanks to a Maine Cancer Foundation grant that will enhance collaboration between Maine Medical Center Research Institute (MMCRI) and Eastern Maine Medical Center (EMMC) Cancer Care. Each organization will receive $200,000 to improve their biorepositories (also known as Biobanks), which are programs that distribute biospecimens (patient tissue samples) to researchers. These awards also fund a new web portal that streamlines the process researchers use to request and acquire samples.
