Discovery Grants

At MOnroe Carell Jr. CHildren's hospital at Vanderbilt

Discovery Grants allow skilled researchers to pursue exciting discoveries in basic and clinical science—aiding our understanding of disease processes and leading to better methods of prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. For Vanderbilt Health physicians and scientists, this funding not only yields early results, it helps develop the ideas that grow into large projects aimed at transformative breakthroughs in care funded by federal agencies and other sources.

At Turner's Heroes, the Discovery Grants that we fund will be focused on pediatric cancer research. The panel that chooses which grant will be funded will consist of Noelle and Randy Cockrell, those associated with Turner's Heroes, and donors to Turner's Heroes.  Your donations will go towards a specific and innovative grant that has the potential to do amazing in our world so that no family must endure another cancer diagnosis.
