In pursuit of our objective of funding the most innovative and impactful work, Nadia’s Gift will leverage Damon Runyon’s highly accomplished scientific advisory committees. To that end, Nadia’s Gift’s managing trustee, Peter Van Camp, has joined the Damon Runyon Board.

Damon Runyon’s reputation in the scientific community is unsurpassed, in part due to the high standards upheld by its award selection committees. Each committee is composed of world-renowned scientists who are leaders in their fields of research. They review all applications and select award recipients, who are then approved by the Damon Runyon Board of Directors. The Damon Runyon Innovator’s award, a multiyear grant that supports the funding of a young innovator’s lab and research, will be a primary focus of all Nadia’s Gift funding going forward.

Nadia’s Gift also continues to support the efforts of Stanford’s Cancer Institute. Playing such a meaningful and compassionate role over the eight years Nadia lived with her disease, Stanford will always be central to the work of Nadia’s Foundation. This is reflected in our five year million dollar pledge to the Stanford Cancer Institute.
