NEW RESEARCH ONCOLOGY PRE-DOCTORAL TRAINEES ANNOUNCED
The Case CCC is pleased to announce the newest trainees appointed to the Research Oncology Training Program:
The primary goal of the Research Oncology Training Program is to prepare predoctoral and postdoctoral participants for investigative careers in cancer research. The predoctoral training program provides a forum within the Biomedical Sciences Training Program (BSTP) at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine for graduate training that emphasizes cancer research. Trainees will conduct their thesis research under the guidance of Cancer Center faculty in the PhD degree-granting programs of Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Neuroscience, Genetics, Pathology, Pharmacology, Physiology and Biophysics. Predoctoral Trainees will participate in the Core Academic Program of the BSTP during the first year of training and then, during subsequent years of training, participate in didactic course work focused specifically on cancer research.
FUNDING OPPORTUNITY– Proteomics and Bioinformatics Pilot Research Award
The Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics is currently accepting applications for the Proteomics and Bioinformatics Pilot Research Award. This award seeks to support up to five research projects that will utilize the facilities of the Center. This program was designed with the understanding that the principal investigator will form a collaboration with the Center and subsequently apply for NIH or equivalent funding using preliminary data acquired during the project period. Funding priority will be given for the following criteria: (1) Applicants who have not yet attained tenure or promotion to the full professor level; (2) Projects with a high likelihood of subsequent national-level funding; (3) Research in the areas of expression proteomics, post-translational modifications, systems biology data analysis, structural mass spectrometry, protein crystallography, and interaction proteomics.
Deadline: May 1

FUNDING OPPORTUNITY– GI SPORE
All faculty members are invited to submit outlines for pilot projects for potential inclusion in the GI SPORE (September 2009). Successful proposals will be included in the NCI SPORE Application and will be considered for Cancer Center funding beginning September 2009.
Proposals must conform to the following guidelines:
2. Proposal (5 pages) in length (excluding references) as follows:
3. NIH biosketches for all faculty participants
4. Detailed budget in NIH Budget Format
Note that a SPORE project must be directed toward translational research of a GI cancer. At least one specific aim should involve either direct patient contact or the study of patient derived tissue samples. For more information and forms click here.
Deadline: March 27
Please email submissions by March 27th to: Terri Daso, Cancer Center Administration, 216-844-7252, email@example.com.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS– Signaling in Cancer Symposium
The Case CCC is pleased the present the Signaling in Cancer Symposium, scheduled for May 18-19 in the Wolstein Research Building. This conference is intended for faculty, postdoctoral fellows and students interested in basic cancer research. The program is filled with many interesting presentations, including that of Keynote Speaker, Jerry E. Chipuk, PhD of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, who will present "Mitochondrial Outer Membrane Permeabilization And Apoptosis Are Regulated By Collaborative Interactions Between Mitochondrial Physiology And BH3-Only Proteins".
Please note that students and postdoctoral fellows may attend this event for FREE. Registration is required. The deadline for registration and abstract submission is April 24.
For details and registration information, please click here.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS– Case CCC Scientific Series: Transcriptional Regulatory Networks in Breast Cancer
Please mark your calendars for the next installment of the Case CCC Scientific Series, Transcriptional Regulatory Networks in Breast Cancer. The following speakers will present on their pilot projects, which were funded by the Breast Cancer Working Group:
This event is scheduled for Tuesday, March 24 in Wolstein Auditorium; the program will begin at 4:00 pm, with a reception immediately following. All are encouraged to attend.
FUNDING OPPORTUNITY– American Cancer Society IRG Awards
The Case CCC is accepting applications for American Cancer Society (ACS) IRG pilot funding for cancer-related research in basic, clinical, prevention & control, behavioral, health services and epidemiology. These pilot project grants are intended to support independent, self-directed investigators early in their careers (usually assistant professor or equivalent). Applicants for the pilot project grants should be within six years of their first independent research or faculty appointment and eligible to apply for independent national competitive research grants, but may not currently hold such a grant.
Recipients of IRG pilot project grants must be, at the time of the application, citizens or noncitizen nationals of the United States or its possessions and territories, or must have been lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence at the time of application.
Application Deadline: April 6

MARK YOUR CALENDARS– Ohio Collaborative Conference on Bioinformatics
The fourth annual Ohio Collaborative Conference on Bioinformatics (OCCBIO) will be hosted by Case Western Reserve University on June 15-17. The conference provides an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of methods, research findings, and experiences. An important goal for the conference is to foster long-term collaborative relationships and networking opportunities within the domain of computational approaches to biology that benefit Ohio.
Early registration opens March 14. Poster Presentation Abstracts are due by May 11 for review by the OCCBIO '09 committee. All appropriate posters submitted will be accommodated.

CASE CCC POSTDOCTORAL TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES
The Case CCC is currently accepting applications for the following training opportunities:
Computational Genomic Epidemiology of Cancer Funded Postdoctoral Fellowship
Cancer Prevention and Control Funded Postdoctoral Fellowship
Stipends and research funds are highly competitive.
Review of applications for both programs will begin March 30 for positions starting August 1. Applications will be accepted until all slots are filled. Please contact Margy Weinberg, Training Grants Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
FUNDING OPPORTUNITY– Association for International Cancer Research (AICR)
AICR awards project grants of between one and three years to support fundamental and translational research into the causes, mechanisms, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer. They will consider proposals in which a mixture of basic and clinical research is proposed. However, completely clinical applications, such as intervention studies, clinical trials or health care delivery research and many substantially clinical applications are beyond the remit of AICR.
Before submitting applications of a clinical or semi-clinical nature, potential applicants are strongly encouraged to seek advice by e-mailing a brief description of the proposed project to the Scientific Co-ordinator (email@example.com).
Applications will be accepted April 1-24.
For details, please click here.
FUNDING OPPORTUNITY– James S. McDonnell Foundation
The Foundation offers Collaborative Activity Awards to initiate interdisciplinary discussions on problems or issues, to help launch interdisciplinary research networks, or to fund communities of researchers/practitioners dedicated to developing new methods, tools, and applications of basic research to applied problems.
In each case the focus of the collaborative activity must meet the program guidelines for one of the following program areas:
Applications are continuously accepted for these awards.
