Competitive Research Grant Program - Equitable Care of Metastatic Breast Cancer (mBC) Patients: A Phased Approach to Understanding and Addressing Healthcare Disparities for People of Color
Conquer Cancer, the ASCO Foundation and Pfizer Global Medical Grants are collaborating to offer a research grant funding opportunity to promote the advancement of scientific knowledge concerning equitable care of metastatic breast cancer (mBC) patients. This research grant program will employ data-driven frameworks to define and address inequities in the delivery of care and outcomes for patients of color with metastatic breast cancer. This program is aligned with the theme of the 2021 ASCO Annual Meeting; Equity: Every Patient. Every Day. Everywhere.
The research areas of interest for this RFP are:
The overall aim is to identify disparities in delivery of care and treatment outcomes for patients of color with metastatic breast cancer, based on a specific understanding of the variables that may be related to the inequity. Variables can include socioeconomic factors, as well as other variables, as identified through research, of a given care delivery system and the communities served by the system. Studies supported by this program should support models to facilitate similar analyses aimed at identifying inequities in other health care systems.
Proposals should focus on specific gaps in research, practice, or care.
