The IU Simon Cancer Center is requesting applications for a grant competition from the American Cancer Society
Mar. 7, 2013
The IU Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center is requesting applications to fund for new pilot projects to assist new investigators who hold the rank of assistant professor, research assistant professor or assistant scientists without an active (i.e., National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, American Cancer Society) national competitive research grant, regardless of the topic.
This program is supported by American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grant, which aims to attract new investigators from Indiana University into cancer research and to provide support for new pilot studies that will produce preliminary data for the investigator to develop into studies that will compete successfully for external, national funds from both federal and private sources.
Faculty from the IU School of Medicine and its regional campuses, as well as the IU schools of nursing, dentistry, optometry, public and environmental affairs, health and rehabilitation sciences, liberal arts, law, science and informatics are encouraged to apply.
Funding is available for four pilot projects, beginning June 1, in amounts up to $40,000. Special funds also are available for one additional pilot study in the amount of $40,000 with a focus on pediatric oncology.
Applications are due Wednesday, May 1. For more information, see the complete request for applications.
