May 2010 Funding Opportunities

Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation
Damon Runyon-Rachleff Innovation Award
Purpose: designed to provide support for the next generation of exceptionally creative thinkers with “high risk/high reward” ideas that have the potential to significantly impact our understanding of and/or approaches to the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of cancer. The Innovation award is specifically designed to provide funding for extraordinary early career researchers who have an innovative new idea but lack sufficient preliminary data to obtain traditional funding. It is not designed to fund incremental advances. The research supported by the award must be novel, exceptionally creative and, if successful, have the strong potential for high impact in the cancer field.
Eligibility: see the RMG webpage below for detailed eligibility clarifications based on correspondence with the sponsor
Amount of funding: $450,000 in total direct costs over three years
Pre-proposal deadline: June 1, 2010

AACR Opens Nominations for Award funded by Susan G. Komen for the Cure®
The American Association for Cancer Research announces a call for nominations for the 2010 AACR Outstanding Investigator Award for Breast Cancer Research, funded by Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.

The award recognizes a scientist who is no more than 50 years old and who is conducting novel and significant work that has had or may have a far-reaching impact on the etiology, detection, diagnosis, treatment or prevention of breast cancer. Such work may involve any discipline in biomedical research including basic, translational, clinical and epidemiological studies.

Last year’s award was presented to Charles M. Perou, PhD, associate professor of genetics, pathology and laboratory medicine, and faculty member of UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, for his work on molecular tumor subtypes and their distinct risk factors.

The award recipient will receive $10,000 and deliver a 25-minute lecture at the 33rd Annual CTRC-AACR San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, to be held December 8-12, 2010, in San Antonio, Texas.

Deadline for nominations: May 20, 2010

Stanford Cancer Center
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).
Eligibility: Stanford faculty working in highly cancer relevant areas of research are eligible to apply. If the PI is not a Cancer Center member, a brief letter of support from a Cancer Center member must accompany the application. The Cancer Center member sponsoring the application should be a project collaborator.
$50,000 for one year (Multiple awards to be made. In 2009, 17 awards were made.)
Deadline: May 28, 2010

Stanford Cancer Center
Developmental Cancer Research Awards for Interactive Projects

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.
Eligibility: 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.
$100,000 for one year (one award to be made)
Deadline: May 28, 2010

New funding opportunities

The Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research has invited the Stanford Cancer Center to nominate a junior faculty member for the V Foundation Scholar Award. Each grant will total $200,000, and is given in two yearly installments. This grant has a zero indirect cost policy, and funds are to be used to offset the direct costs of the research project.
The grant is designed to identify, retain and further the careers of talented young investigators. Provides funds directly to young scientists who are developing their own independent laboratory research projects. These grants enable talented young scientists to establish their laboratories and gain a competitive edge necessary to earn additional funding from other sources. The V Scholars determine how to best use the funds in their research projects.
The V Foundation Scholar candidate must:
*Be associated with a non-profit institution
*Have demonstrated expertise and promise in the designated areas of research
*Have completed at least two years of fellowship training
*Currently hold a tenured track faculty position
*Have no more than 10 years since terminal degree (MD or PhD)
(Exceptions must be approved prior to submission)
*Have not been promoted to associate professor
Researchers who have secured their own R01 funding are not eligible for this award. Applicants with institutional or K08 awards are eligible.
The V Foundation proposal deadline is Friday, August 6, 2010.
For more information, please refer to the V Foundation website: http://www.jimmyv.org/research/the-funding-process.html
Submit a one-page letter describing your research project to Denise Baughman (deniseb@stanford.edu) by Monday, June 7, 2010. The Cancer Center leadership will decide which proposal should go forward and will notify recipients within five days of making the final decision.
Internal Timeline:
June 7, 2010 -- One page summaries due for internal review and selection (email to: deniseb@stanford.edu)
By June 25, 2010 -- Selected applicant will be notified to proceed with the full application/proposal
July 16, 2010 -- Final proposal due to RMG
Aug. 6, 2010 -- Proposal due to V Foundation
