MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR– Forward Thinking Interdisciplinary Alliance Investment Grants
There is a requirement to have matching funds from the participating schools. The SOM is requesting all interested investigators submit a send a request for matching funds to Bob Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org) - no later than September 8. The request should include a half-page abstract of your proposal, list of participating faculty and schools, the approximate total budget, and what portion of the budget will need to be matched by the SOM.
The Cancer Center would like respond to this opportunity. A bit of creativity and compelling impact will help move proposals to the next rounds, given the clear breadth of priorities and interests on the part of the review committees.
Please consider submitting a response, review with your team, and forward to me so that the Cancer Center leadership can support and comment on your proposed submission. We will not delay your submission to the SOM, and if you would like to submit it directly through another school just let us know!
Send along your topics and proposals to me at email@example.com.

CORE FACILITY SURVEYS
Please help us to strengthen the Shared Resources of the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center by completing a survey. Your feedback on the core facilities that you have used will guide us in determining how the cores can be strengthened and what further investments should be made. Your input will help to ensure that the Cancer Center continues to meet the research needs of its members. To take the survey, please click here.
We are also requesting members complete a separate survey about the Laser Capture Microdissection Service of the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center. Please click here to take that survey.
FUNDING OPPORTUNITY– NIH Director's Pioneer, New Innovator, and Transformative R01 Initiatives
NIH welcomes proposals for 2010 NIH Director's Pioneer Awards and New Innovator Awards. Both programs are part of the NIH Roadmap for Medical Research and support exceptionally creative scientists who take highly innovative, potentially high-impact approaches to major challenges in biomedical or behavioral research.
Pioneer Awards provide up to $2.5 million in direct costs over 5 years and are open to scientists at any career stage.
New Innovator Awards provide up to $1.5 million in direct costs over the same period and are for early stage investigators (ESI) who have not received an NIH regular research (R01) or similar NIH grant.
NIH expects to make at least 7 Pioneer Awards and at least 33 New Innovator Awards in September 2010.
To continue its strong record of diversity in these programs, NIH especially encourages women and members of groups that are underrepresented in NIH research to apply.
Pioneer Award deadline: October 20.
New Innovator Award Deadline: October 27.
The Transformative R01 (T-R01) supports exceptionally innovative, high risk, original and/or unconventional research projects that have the potential to create or overturn fundamental paradigms. Please click here for more information about the program and upcoming funding opportunities.
FUNDING OPPORTUNITY– Clinical Investigator Development Program
The Center for Cancer Research (CCR) announces a training opportunity for physicians interested in dedicating their careers to clinical oncology research.
