Investing in cutting-edge research to prevent, detect, and treat ovarian cancer, a deadly and underfunded disease.

Over $14 Million
to ovarian cancer researchers since 1999
224 Research Grants Funded
in areas of Prevention, Early Detection, Treatment, Survivorship
Largest Applicant Pool
186 scientists in 2018 (up from 145 in 2017)
14.2x Return on Investment

Rivkin-funded scientists receive 14.2x in new funding from other institutions after Rivkin’s initial investment

Our current funding rate is 8%, meaning we are leaving important science on the table. We want to see funding rates increase to 15% in two years.
