Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network (BCAN)
Grants to USA and Canada medical investigators affiliated with nonprofit research institutions for research related to bladder cancer. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to a full grant application. Funding is intended for research that will result in a greater understanding of the management of bladder cancer.
The Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network (BCAN) is pleased to announce that it will again offer two Bladder Cancer Research Innovation Awards in 2022. This marks the second consecutive year that BCAN will grant two Innovation Awards to support experienced investigators with exceptionally novel and creative projects designed to produce significant advances in the understanding of the management of bladder cancer.
The BCAN Bladder Cancer Research Innovation Awards support high-risk, high-reward projects with great potential to produce breakthroughs in the understanding of bladder cancer. The proposed research may be basic, translational, clinical or epidemiological and must have direct applicability and relevance to bladder cancer. Applications must include innovative approaches and new ideas to be eligible for funding.
Projects that are high-risk and high-reward, as opposed to incremental in nature, are required. Essential elements of this award mechanism include the following: does the project address (i) an important problem and/or critical barrier to progress in the field of bladder cancer research? (ii) an area in which there is a significant gap in current knowledge?
The award is for direct research expenses, which may include salary and benefits for postdoctoral or clinical research fellows, and/or research assistants; research/lab supplies; and equipment. Awardees are expected to attend the annual Bladder Cancer Think Tank meeting in August 2023 and are required to present the results of the funded research during the 2024 Think Tank meeting.
