Fueling Innovation

Researchers spend hours writing grants to compete for funding. This is precious time that could be spent in the lab. With a Paceline grant, Georgia Cancer Center researchers are given a significant leg-up to kickstart their projects.

Seed Funding to Cure Cancer Faster 

Aided by seed funding, researchers are able to purchase equipment, test theories, and move more discoveries forward. Thanks to the support by the Medical College of Georgia Foundation, Paceline is able to give 100% of participant raised funds to researchers at the Georgia Cancer Center.
