Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation Clinical Investigator Award
CWRU SOM has been invited to nominate up to three individuals for the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation Clinical Investigator Award. This award supports young physician-scientists conducting patient-oriented cancer research, with a goal of increasing the number of physicians capable of moving seamlessly between the laboratory and the patient's bedside in search of breakthrough treatments.
New this year is a novel partnership with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), which opens access to the NIH Clinical Center (CC) to Damon Runyon Clinical Investigators. The goal of this partnership is to use the special talent, expertise and resources of the participants to undertake pilot studies of specific diseases and to develop collaborative partnerships that accelerate clinical and translational cancer research, and thereby improve human health. See the website for more information.
If you are interested in applying for this award, please submit the following materials to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, January 10: biosketch and a one-paragraph description of how your research fits the description of "Clinical Research" as described by the Damon Runyon Foundation.
Internal Deadline: January 10
Mary Kay Foundation Cancer Research Grant Program
The Mary Kay Foundation has released a Call for Applications for their Cancer Research Grant Program. This non-profit public foundation focuses on funding research for innovative grants for translational research in ovarian, uterine, breast or cervical cancer. Translational research is broadly defined as research that will provide a scientific link between laboratory research and the clinic. Ultimately, such research would lead to improvement in diagnosis, prognosis, prevention, or treatment of the cancer.
Only ONE application per institution is allowed. Investigators interested in applying must submit their biosketch and a one-paragraph description to email@example.com by Wednesday, January 5.
Internal Deadline: January 5

Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Research Program
The Avon Foundation for Women continues to seek new preventive strategies to address the growing number of breast cancer cases around the globe. To develop new strategies to prevent breast cancer we need to understand the causes of breast cancer in women, changes in breast cells that give rise to cancer, markers for disease, and how breast cancer progresses. The 2011 Avon Foundation Research Program seeks proposals in these areas to advance understanding of causes of breast cancer and prevention.
For 2011, there are two receipt dates (review cycles) and there is a 2-stage process:
