REMINDER: Transdisciplinary Translational Team (T3) Science Award

Due Date: August 1, 2014

In recognition of the need to support investigators interested in pursuing large multi-project or multi-member grants, the HDFCCC supports this award mechanism aimed at fostering transdisciplinary research within the center.

Each award under this mechanism will provide $100,000 for the term of one year for a team of three or more HDFCCC Members or Associate Members to engage in activities necessary for the creation of a successful proposal submission to the National Cancer Institute or other peer-reviewed granting agency for a program-project level grant, including grants within the Specialized Program of Research Excellence mechanism (SPORE) or program project grants (PPG).

This Award may be used to offset investigator salaries, preliminary laboratory and clinical studies, use of cores, and a limited amount of travel and meeting expense necessary to bring expert external advisors in to review the team’s proposal.

See the entire RFA for eligibility requirements.


NCI Outstanding Investigator Award (R35)

The objective of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Outstanding Investigator Award (OIA) is to provide long-term support to experienced investigators with outstanding records of cancer research productivity who propose to conduct exceptional research. The OIA is intended to allow investigators the opportunity to take greater risks, be more adventurous in their lines of inquiry, or take the time to develop new techniques. The OIA would allow an Institution to submit an application nominating an established Program Director/Principal Investigator (PD/PI) for a 7-year grant.
Deadline:   9/1   Internal LOI due to Kate Shumate
