Campaign 2019!
We achieved our $60,000 goal
for the CRS Operating Grant!
And we have reached our additional goal of
$20,000 USD for a Pilot Award.
Pilot awards are often research
on innovative ideas carried out as a special
project by the lab

Help us continue to fund research

In collaboration with the Cancer Research Society
we are offering a $120,000 GCT-specific research operating grant in 2019.

We will also be able to offer a smaller-scale Pilot Award thanks to the your generous donations.
Pilot awards can produce data to be used as evidence for larger grants (like an operating grant).

Inhibin testing
We realise that there is inconsistent offering of Inhibin and AMH testing in Canada, and possibly elsewhere.
ARUP Labs in Salt Lake City, Utah, is one lab that can test for both markers and will accept samples from patients.
These links provide instructions for international sample submission,
a sample order form (cost is $98 USD but may vary), and
instructions specific to Canadian submissions.

Be sure to contact ARUP directly before arranging collection of your sample to ensure you have the latest information.

GCTRF is a registered, 100% volunteer foundation

The foundation is registered with the US Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) charity.  When you donate to GCTRF 100% of that donation goes to researchers due to the fact that we are a totally volunteer organisation and utilise a private grant to cover operating expenses.   We pay no salaries and no director's fees.  When you donate your hard-earned money you deserve to know that it is going to the purposes for which you donated!
