research. Each Young Investigator is awarded $100,000 over a two-year period.

The program was seeded through a $250,000 challenge grant received from the Gerald C. McNamara and Renée K. Petrofes Charitable Fund encouraging outstanding young researchers to focus on bladder cancer research. BCAN responded by raising more than $500,000 in additional private funds to further develop the program. Two of the awards hold the names of prominent supporters of bladder cancer research whose families have been directly affected by the disease: the Raymond and Maria Floyd Family Young Investigator Award and the James Family Foundation Young Investigator Award.
