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.
