The goal of C17 Research Network is to improve the treatment, care, quality of life and the outcomes of children with cancer, blood disorders, and stem cell transplants. The C17 Research Network supports research that is hypothesis driven, addresses a gap in knowledge, furthers our current understanding or explores new ideas and areas. The mandate of the C17 Research Network is to fund Canadian-led, preferentially collaborative research involving multiple pediatric oncology/hematology centres, across Canada; multi-disciplinary research; and to encourage new research collaborations.

C17 has partnered with CRS to fund up to two (2) grants in the area of pediatric oncology research at a value of $60,000/year for 2 years. For the 2015/16, C17 Research Network grant competition (Round 18), applications in the areas of pediatric basic/translational oncology research or pre-clinical developmental therapeutics (DVL) in pediatric oncology should be directed towards this competition
