April 2010 Funding Opportunities

Announcing the 2010 Developmental Cancer Research Awards in Translational and Population Sciences

Through the Developmental Cancer Research Awards (DCRA) the Stanford Cancer Center seeks to stimulate the development of high-quality, multidisciplinary translational cancer research (with direct application to cancer diagnosis, treatment, or care), and interdisciplinary research projects in population science (specifically cancer prevention and control and cancer epidemiology).

2010 DCRA Priorities:

Collaborations between basic scientists, clinical researchers and population researchers;
Collaborations between Stanford and NCCC investigators;
Projects lead by young investigators;
Innovative clinical trials and;
Projects in GI, prostate and women’s cancers

The Cancer Center expects to fund a number of one-year projects this year, with the funds being awarded on a competitive basis for up to $50,000 per project. The time period for these awards is from Sept. 1, 2010 through Aug. 31, 2011.

Applications are due May 28, 2010.

Stanford and CPIC faculty working in highly cancer relevant areas of research are eligible to apply. Postdoctoral trainees are eligible to apply if they provide a letter of support from their sponsoring faculty preceptor and a Cancer Center member. For more information regarding eligibility and application requirements, please refer to the DCRA proposal guidelines, which are available on this web page.

TIMETABLE

RFA Posted Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Applications Due Friday, May 28, 2010, by 4 pm.

Awards Announced Monday, June 21, 2010

Funding available Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2010

Progress Report Due Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2011

For more information about the Developmental Cancer Research Awards (DCRA), please contact the Stanford Cancer Center at 650-724-9547 or visit http://med.stanford.edu/cancer/research/devresawds/2010devresrfa.html.


The Stanford Cancer Center is also pleased to announce the availability of grant funds to support new ideas for program project grants (PPGs) or multi-project grants.

These awards are intended to foster interactive research project ideas, and will provide funding for ideas that will lead to new collaborations involving three or more investigators, especially those between or among disciplines. Funds may not be used to support ongoing research projects. The Cancer Center encourages submissions relevant to any cancer disease site.

2010 DCRA for Interactive Projects Priorities:

Scientific merit;
Relevance to cancer research;
Qualifications, experience and productivity of the applicant;
Collaboration within the cancer research community;
Project feasibility given facilities, budget, time and other resources available; and
Potential for future PPGs or multi-project grants. (For more information about PPGs visit: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/funding_program.htm).

The Cancer Center plans to fund one interactive project this year. Funds will be awarded on a competitive basis in the amount of $100,000. Applications are due May 28, 2010, and awards will be announced on June 21, 2010.

Applications are due May 28, 2010.

Stanford and CPIC faculty working in highly cancer relevant areas of research are eligible to apply. At least one of the collaborating investigators should be a Cancer Center member. For more information regarding eligibility and application requirements, please refer to the DCRA Guidelines for Interactive Projects proposals that are available on this web page: http://med.stanford.edu/cancer/research/devresawds/2010interactiverfa.html.

Technology/Therapeutic Development Awards (TTDA)
The intent of the PRMRP TTDA is to provide support for the translation of promising preclinical findings into products for clinical applications in at least one of the congressionally directed FY10 PRMRP topic areas.  The product(s) to be developed may be pharmacologic agents (drugs or biologicals), devices, and/or clinical guidance. The PI must provide a transition plan (including potential funding and resources) showing how the product will progress to clinical trials and/or delivery to the military or civilian market after the completion of the PRMRP award.
Interesting features of the Peer Reviewed Medical Technology/Therapeutic Development Awards include:
Eligibility: PIs at or above the level of Assistant Professor (or equivalent) are eligible to submit applications; clinical trials are not allowed.  
Amount of funding: Maximum funding of $1.7 Million in direct costsplus indirect costs, period of performance cannot exceed 4 years.
Deadlines:

Idea Development Award
Purpose
: The PCRP Idea Development Award supports new ideas that represent innovative approaches to prostate cancer research and have the potential to make an important contribution to eliminating death and suffering from prostate cancer. Although groundbreaking research often involves a degree of risk, applications should be based on a sound scientific rationale that is established through logical reasoning and/or critical review and analysis of the literature. The PCRP seeks applications from the wide spectrum of basic to clinical research (excluding clinical trials), that are responsive to at least one of the PCRP overarching challenges and at least one of the PCRP focus areas.
See the program guidelines for 2010 research focus areas.
Amount of funding: maximum funding of $450,000 in direct costs (plus indirects) for up to 3 years
Eligibility:  Stanford faculty with PI eligibility
Deadlines:
Invitation to Submit an Application: April 21, 2010
Full application (by invitation only):  June 9, 2010 11:59 pm. EST  via grants.gov

Synergistic Idea Development Award
Purpose:
The PCRP Synergistic Idea Development Award supports new ideas that represent innovative approaches to prostate cancer research involving two or three independent, faculty-level (or equivalent) Principal Investigators (PIs). These investigators should use synergistic and complementary perspectives to address a central problem or question in prostate cancer research. This award is designed to encourage and support both new and pre-existing partnerships. The overall goal of this award is to significantly accelerate advances in prostate cancer research to support the PCRP vision of conquering prostate cancer. Although groundbreaking research often involves a degree of risk, applications should be based on a sound scientific rationale that is established through logical reasoning and/or critical review and analysis of the literature.  
The Synergistic Idea Development Award requires that multiple investigators jointly design a single project. However, each partner will be recognized as a PI, submit a separate application, and receive an individual award. The research project must be supported by the unique expertise of each PI, and it must clearly define the synergistic components that will facilitate and accelerate progress in a way that could not be accomplished through independent efforts. Multidisciplinary projects are encouraged, and multi-institutional projects are allowed.
See the program guidelines for 2010 research focus areas.
Amount of funding: maximum funding of $750,000 in direct costs (plus indirects) for up to 3 years
Eligibility:  Stanford faculty with PI eligibility

Invitation to Submit an Application: April 21, 2010
