Israel Cancer Research Fund (ICRF)
Grants to Israel individual postdoctoral investigators at eligible institutions for cancer research. Funding may be used for basic or clinical research or for a training program. During the award funding period, the applicant must conduct his or her research in Israel.
In accordance with Israeli governmental policy aimed at encouraging young scientists to return to Israel, the ICRF has partnered with the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) to develop a joint program to fund outstanding cancer scientists who wish to return to Israel to develop an independent research program.
Gesher (Grant to Support Homecoming and Research) Awards are intended to support young investigators after their period of postdoctoral training. The awards are made to each sponsoring institution with the understanding that they will support a specific project that will be conducted by a specific, returning postdoctoral scientist who will have a position that enables him/her to establish an independent research program.
Funds may be requested for clinical or basic research or training, which must relate to cancer and must be conducted in Israel. To clarify, all research must be conducted in an academic institute or public or semi-public research Institute, i.e. universities and hospitals.
Gesher Awards will be given preferentially to those persons who have concluded their doctoral dissertation no less than 2 years, but no more than seven (7) years prior to the date on which the ICRF-MOST award is to begin.
ICRF-MOST also encourages Gesher applications from M.D.’s who wish to pursue additional investigative work in a laboratory setting to acquire research experience. For more experience, see https://www.icrfonline.org/sites/default/files/media/Gesher%20Award%20Policies%202019.pdf#page=2.
