FUNDING OPPORTUNITY– Acceleration Grant Opportunities in Cellular Molecular Imaging of Cancer, Cancer Biology, Therapeutics
Acceleration funding is available for investigative interdisciplinary teams with broad expertise in cancer biology, molecular imaging/imaging, pharmacology, genetics for opportunities to explore aspects of cancer biology with non-invasive imaging technologies.
This funding is designed to specifically provide the resources to fully develop ongoing projects for inclusion in ICMIC application, and is open to eligible faculty members with cancer focused funded research
Selected projects that will be used as the basis for a Summer 2010 P50 In-vivo Cellular and Molecular Imaging Center (ICMIC) grant and other future independent grants.
Funding priority will be given for the following criteria:
Deadline: September 15
Contact Marianne Sperk at Marianne.firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and application instructions.
FUNDING OPPORTUNITY– DOD Lung Cancer Research Program Concept Award
The LCRP Concept Award mechanism supports the exploration of a highly innovative new concept or untested theory that addresses an important problem relevant to lung cancer. The Concept Award is not intended to support a logical progression of an already established research project but, instead, allows Principal Investigators (PIs) the opportunity to pursue serendipitous observations. This award mechanism supports high-risk studies that have the potential to reveal entirely new avenues for investigation. Proposals must describe how the new idea will enhance the existing knowledge of lung cancer or create an entirely new avenue for investigation. Submissions from and partnerships with investigators at Military Medical Treatment Facilities, Military labs, and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Centers and research laboratories are encouraged. Research completed through a Concept Award may generate sufficient preliminary data to enable the PI to prepare a proposal for future research.
Pre-Application Deadline: August 20

The training program is funded by the NIH and it is a component of the Cleveland Clinical and Translational Science Collaborative. This innovative program is a collaboration involving CWRU, Cleveland Clinic, UH and MetroHealth. Each CR Scholar will embark on a 4-year program of intensive training in multidisciplinary team-based, patient-oriented research, combining a novel educational program with mentored research experiences.
Qualified candidates will hold an MD, PhD, DDS, PharmD, PsyD, or equivalent degree, and have demonstrated keen interest in clinical research. We invite applications from physicians, nurses, dentists, social and behavioral scientists, engineers, biostatisticians, epidemiologists, bioethicists, and other professionals with expertise relevant to clinical research. Successful candidates will receive a CWRU appointment, with salary and benefits commensurate with prior experience and qualifications, research stipend, tuition benefits, and access to a multidisciplinary pool of highly qualified mentors who will guide their research projects.
Deadline: October 23
FUNDING OPPORTUNITY– Avon Foundation Breast Care Fund
The Avon Foundation Breast Care Fund (AFBCF) is accepting applications for 2010 funding. The mission of the AFBCF is to link medically underserved women to breast health education and screening services. Medically underserved women need targeted, customized approaches to enable them to obtain regular mammograms and clinical breast exams. Successful programs have: culturally-competent educational strategies; dedicated staff with specialized language and communications skills; and participation from members of the targeted community who can reach women where they live, work and worship, and who offer personalized assistance to women for whom it is often difficult to access health care.
Application Deadline: August 28
