Grants of up to $45,000 per year to Israel early-career medical researchers employed by nonprofit research institutions for clinical cancer studies. Funding is intended to improve the research skills of young Israeli scientists who show exceptional potential for contribution to clinical cancer research as independent investigators. Candidates must be nominated by a public or private nonprofit institution engaged in healthcare and healthcare-related research and located in Israel.

The goal of the grant program is to provide free time for young medical or pediatric oncologists to devote to clinical research projects and to obtain additional (post-fellowship) training to become a leader in clinical research programs. CRCDAs are available to investigators in the formative phase of their careers who have demonstrated outstanding potential for contribution to clinical cancer research as independent investigators and who will benefit from additional mentored experience in a scientific environment that is conducive to the development of an independent research career.

The CRCDA is intended to support proposals with a clinical research focus. Clinical Research utilizes human subjects or materials and has direct application to the prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of cancer in the individual or group of individuals under study, or the rehabilitation (including quality of life issues) of the patient. Translational Research, or the transfer of basic research findings to clinical usefulness, is also acceptable.

Individuals who receive a CRCDA are to devote at least half of their time to clinical research activities. Such activities may include giving or receiving research training, supervising the research of others, and participating in workshops and scientific or professional meetings. The principal involvement must be with the actual conduct of research. It is expected that the other portion of the grantee's time will be devoted to direct patient care at the funded institution. During the period of the grant, the institution is expected to reduce or defer demands for teaching, service, or committee duties that do not contribute directly to the development of the candidate's research career.

Because the goal of CRCDA funding is to promote the development of early-career investigators, each investigator must establish a formal mentoring program.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Support is limited to a maximum stipend of $45,000 per year.

Term of Contract:

CRCDAs are awarded, contingent upon the availability of funds, for a single support period of three (3) years.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Funds for cancer research are available to citizens of Israel, both native-born and those who have settled. Funds are not available to visiting scientists. (Proof of Israeli citizenship must be furnished upon request.)

Candidates must have a medical degree and at least two (2) years of fellowship training in medical or pediatric hematology-oncology or a related specialty, but not more than five (5) years of subsequent relevant professional experience prior to the award commencement date.

Although an individual is considered as the grantee, grants are made to eligible institutions on behalf of the grantee. The grantee is an employee of the institution to which the grant is made and his or her status, title, salary, and staff privileges are determined by the institution according to its established policies for individuals holding 12-month appointments, except as otherwise set out in the guidelines.

Past recipients are not permitted to reapply for this grant.

Awards may not be used simply to substitute one source of salary support for another for an individual who is already conducting full-time research, nor do they provide support to the institution or substitute for institutional support of an investigator.

Pre-Application Information:

- Application Received by the Fund in New York: December 31, 20120, 11:59 PM (EST)
- Notification of Decision: July 1, 2021
- Activation of Award: September 1, 2021

Each RCDA applicant must identify at least two mentors committed to overseeing the applicant's progress from among senior investigators at the applicant's institution. Letters of support and a detailed Mentorship Plan must accompany the application.

An RCDA application may not be submitted concurrently with another research career development-type application that would duplicate the provisions of the RCDA, nor may a grantee accept another research career development award that would duplicate the provisions of the ICRF grant. Potentially duplicative grants include clinical investigator awards, academic and teacher investigator awards, and postdoctoral and senior fellowships.
