Leukemia Research Foundation
The Leukemia Research Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2011-2012 funding cycle. Preference will be given to proposals that focus on leukemia, lymphoma and MDS.

New investigators are considered to be within seven years of their first independent position; years as a resident physician, fellow physician, or post-doctoral fellow are considered to be training years.
Deadline: February 15, 2011
AICR Research Grant Program
The AICR Research Grant Program encourages innovative research on food, nutrition, physical activity and weight management in relation to cancer prevention, treatment, and survivorship. AICR offers three types of research grants:
Investigator Initiated Grants (IIGs) are awarded to researchers at not-for-profit universities, hospitals or research centers. These three-year grants will be awarded to support the start up of epidemiologic or intervention studies requiring additional time. The PI must have a PhD, MD or equivalent degree and be a research staff or faculty member at a nonprofit academic or research institution at the level of an assistant professor (or its equivalent) or higher.
Matching Grants follow the same eligibility requirements as Investigator Initiated Grants. AICR is interested in working with for-profit corporations and/or not-for profit organizations in funding cancer research consistent with AICR's areas of interest. The PI must have a PhD, MD or equivalent degree and be a research staff or faculty member at a nonprofit academic or research institution at the level of an assistant professor (or its equivalent) or higher.
Postdoctoral Awards (PDAs) are awarded to postdoctoral trainees at not-for-profit universities, hospitals or research centers. The PI must have a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree, awarded no more than four years prior to the date of application. The applicant must be sponsored by an academic mentor or professor from the facility or laboratory in which the applicant is to perform the research.
All applications must bear the signature of the official head of the organization or that of a designee, since grants are not made to individual researchers, but to the relevant institution.
LOI Deadline: January 25, 2011
CTSC Pilot Funding
The Clinical and Translational Science Collaborative (CTSC) announces the December 1, 2010 quarterly competition for core utilization pilot funding of up to $10,000 to support activities provided by any of the CTSC Core facilities. This program is being supported by CWRU, UH, and MetroHealth Medical Center, and investigators whose primary appointments are based at these sites are eligible for this competition. Details and instructions will be posted on the CTSC website. Please contact the CTSC research concierge with any questions.
Investigators at the Cleveland Clinic have access to internal pilot funds for clinical and translational research through the RPC Program. Information and details can be found on the Lerner Research Institute website. Click "Apply" on the right sidebar for the on-line application. Contact Charlotte Bhasin with any questions about the Cleveland Clinic program.
