New Grant Program to Boost Cancer Research at Stanford

The Stanford University Comprehensive Cancer Center announces a major new developmental research award program to support discovery and innovation in the detection, treatment and prevention of cancer.

All researchers and clinicians conducting cancer-related research at the Stanford University School of Medicine are encouraged to apply. Special consideration will be given to interdisciplinary team projects.

Selected applicants can receive up to $50,000 to pursue their research. Funding for the program is provided by Stanford University President’s (John Hennessy) Office.

The program focuses on two areas of research:

Translational Research: Translational research grants will be awarded to innovative collaborations between basic scientists and clinical researchers who are working to translate laboratory discoveries into new approaches for cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Population Science Research: Grants for population science research aim to support investigations in cancer epidemiology, survivorship and control with the goal of advancing more effective prevention and detection strategies, public health policy and cancer care.  

Grant applications must be sponsored by a member of the Stanford Cancer Center. Stanford University researchers and clinicians are encouraged to collaborate together to write their grant proposals.

Proposals must be submitted by June 1, 2006.

Award winners will be announced on July 14, 2006.
