The SITC Sparkathon – Emerging Leaders, Igniting Innovation is an exciting opportunity for early career professionals seeking to participate in new research that contributes to the cancer immunotherapy field and the society as a whole.

Following an application process, a group of 30 emerging leaders will explore the critical hurdles that have challenged this field for years. Once projects have been determined, teams will formulate plans to solve the major issues. Participants will have access to leadership experts who will assist teams in developing their proposals for successful implementation.

Projects will be presented to a panel of SITC leaders who will select the top proposals for implementation.

But first ...

Matching Donation Challenge

Before SITC can open the Sparkathon application process and attempt to make a large leap forward in research, the society must meet its goal to raise $600,000. An anonymous donor has pledged to DOUBLE all donations made to the Forward Fund, meaning the society has been challenged to raise $300,000 over the next two years ($150,000 per year) for this special initiative.

Now is the time to ignite the Sparkathon!

If SITC reaches its goal, $600,000 will help create a unique opportunity for the society’s early career professionals to tackle the biggest hurdles facing the future of the research. Consider making a pledge or contribution to the Forward Fund now and make twice the impact on the society and a lasting difference for the future of cancer immunotherapy.
