OHSU’s Knight Cancer Institute is offering two internal funding mechanisms for young cancer researchers who are generating preliminary data for peer-reviewed national funding and career development proposals. Type types of funding are available. The deadline for both opportunities is August 29, 2011.
- Cancer Research Development Awards – Provides $10,000 in direct costs to support clinical, basic, or population-based research that is cancer focused. Interdisciplinary research, in which investigators from disparate scientific areas collaborate to bring unique approaches to the cancer problem, is encouraged.
- Eligibility: Faculty members within five years of their first faculty appointment and senior-level trainees (e.g., senior post-doctoral fellows without faculty rank of assistant professor) who have well-developed plans for preparing a national cancer research development application (e.g., NIH K-award or equivalent) may apply. Applications should be submitted via the OHSU Limited Submission Process.
- Umpqua Bank Pediatric Cancer Research Funding Opportunity – Provides $10,000 in direct costs to cultivate outstanding pediatric cancer research.
- Eligibility: Proposals will be accepted from investigators who are faculty members within five years of their first faculty appointment or are in a senior fellowship or post-doctoral position in transition to independent funding. Applications should be submitted via the OHSU Limited Submission Process.
