Grants of $70,000 to Israel established investigators employed at a medical research institution for research projects that have the potential to improve cancer treatment. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to support research that will speed up the understanding of cancer and result in new knowledge that will quickly improve the development of novel therapies. Funds may be requested for clinical or basic research or training, which must relate to cancer and must be conducted in Israel.

Preliminary data are not a prerequisite, but applicants are encouraged to provide data from disparate sources to support the rationale upon which the new concepts are derived. Multi-investigator applications and interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged, but not required.

Of paramount importance is the promise of accelerating progress in our understanding of the biology underlying cancer and providing new knowledge that will rapidly enhance the development of innovative diagnostics and therapeutics.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Awarded grants are $70,000 per year.

Term of Contract:

Awarded grants will be for a period of two (2) years. Funding for the second year is contingent upon progress in the preceding funding period.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

To apply for an ICRF-funded grant, an investigator must be a citizen of Israel (proof of Israeli citizenship must be furnished upon request).

Typically, all research must be conducted in Israel. However, in the case of certain collaborative grants, joint applications are considered from co-investigators, only one of whom is an Israeli citizen proposing research that will be conducted at an Israeli institution.

In addition to the applicant’s signature, each submitted application must be signed by an authorized institutional official in order to signify the ability and willingness of the sponsoring institution to provide research space and budgetary oversight to the project.

The funds are to be used for actual direct expenses (salary, supplies, etc.) connected with the project. No overhead, clerical, or other administrative charges may be made by the institution against the award funds. ICRF does not allow funds to be used for travel.

Pre-Application Information:

To apply for the Acceleration Grants Category, a Letter of Intent (LOI) is required. The LOI should be submitted via the online application system. The deadline for LOI submission is: Wednesday, December 1, 2021, 11:59PM EST.

The grant application deadline is: December 31, 2021, 11:59PM EST.

A limited number of applicants whose Letters of Intent are deemed most meritorious will be invited to submit full research proposals and compete for the available grants.
