Latest Update On Kure It Grants

Working With Researchers

In February 2018, Kure It hosted a Rivalry Retreat inviting researchers from USC Norris and UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Centers to collaborate on the grants they received over that last 5 years through our Rivals United For A Kure  campaign.  Donors were invited to a reception later in the day to meet the researchers and hear the impact that has been made in underfunded cancer research.  Hear from Dr. Alan Wayne, Interim Director of USC Norris, and the researchers how important Kure It grants are in finding a kure.

Meet the Researchers

Kure It’s mission is to be the leader in granting funds to scientists researching kidney cancer and other underfunded cancers.
