Grants to Canada researchers to support innovative, creative problem solving in cancer research. Funding is intended to support unconventional concepts, approaches or methodologies to address problems in cancer research, particularly breast cancer and skin cancer research. The goal of the Innovation program is to support the development and testing of transformative, paradigm-shifting concepts and approaches to address problems in cancer research, enhance the understanding of cancer, and generate novel approaches to confront the challenges faced in defeating cancer.
Successfully funded Innovation projects are ideally based on “high risk” ideas that have a strong potential for “high reward.” They are feasible and doable by the applicant(s), but not necessarily based on a significant amount of preliminary data. With a significant emphasis on innovation, this program encourages bold attempts to test novel hypotheses and/or generate new knowledge and/or improvements related to cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and support. Applications are encouraged from across all areas and disciplines of cancer research, as well as from investigators in other disciplines whose ideas are relevant to the field of cancer research.
The review criteria will include, but not necessarily be restricted to, five assessment categories: Innovation, Research Strategy, Investigator(s), Environment, and Cancer Relevance. For information about these categories see the URL for Full Text.
Special funding calls within the Innovation Grant competition envelope:
Funds can be used for the purchase and maintenance of animals, expendable supplies, minor items of equipment, payment of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and technical and professional assistants, open access publication costs, research travel and permanent equipment. Equipment requests cannot exceed 25% of the requested budget.
