One grant of $67,500 annually is available to USA and international medical doctors and other individuals holding doctoral degrees or the equivalent to conduct basic, clinical, epidemiological, or translational research into cancer prevention. Junior faculty (within the first five years of an appointment) can propose projects that are innovative and novel with the possibility of a strong impact on cancer prevention.
The goal of the grant program is to encourage junior faculty to pursue novel, high-risk, high-reward cancer prevention research. Travel support is included to help foster interactions and collaborations among cancer scientists studying various aspects of cancer biology and to disseminate scientific knowledge about cancer prevention research within the field.
Proposed projects may differ from current accepted practice and break new ground or extend previous findings in new directions and therefore, may not be supported by substantial preliminary data. Accordingly, such projects will be evaluated based on the conceptual framework, the level of innovation, and the potential for high reward. The research proposed for funding may be basic, translational, clinical, or epidemiological in nature and can be in any discipline of cancer prevention research.
The grant provides funding for expenses related to the research project, which may include salary and benefits of the grant recipient, postdoctoral or clinical research fellows, graduate students, and/or research assistants, research/laboratory supplies, equipment, publication charges for manuscripts that pertain directly to the funded project, other research expenses, and for attendance at an AACR Annual Meeting, AACR Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research Conference, or other AACR meeting for the purpose of participating in scholarly exchange about the funded research.
