The challenge of the Cure Prize is to develop an innovation that will improve the quality of care for a typically fatal cancer through patient application within three five years. The Cure Prize is Curebound’s highest award for bold innovation in cancer research, with a $1 million grant. The three collaborative research teams that received the 2023 Cure Prizes have projects focused on the treatment of liver, pancreatic and ovarian cancer.
