QBI held a competition to give away 1.1 million dollars for bold ideas and basic research in cancer and psychiatry. Four grants and four fellowships were awarded to the best collaborative ideas that merged both basic and clinical research. Jeremy Reiter and David Raleigh proposed a bold idea in cancer: How fats cause cancer: Lipids in the primary cilium activate oncogenic Hedgehog signaling.
