Intramural Funding Opportunities

  • Nov 1: Pancreas Cancer RFA
    Thanks to a generous donation from the Shorenstein Foundation, the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center is requesting applications for basic and/or translational research into pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Only collaborative projects between investigators newly interested in pancreas cancer and more established pancreas cancer researchers will be considered.

  • LOI Deadline: Oct 15
    2021 Conquer Cancer - Breast Cancer Research Foundation Advanced Clinical Research Award (ACRA) for Diversity and Inclusion

    The Advanced Clinical Research Award (ACRA) is designed to support physician-scientists committed to performing original, clinical cancer research in an area not currently funded. This research must have a patient-oriented focus, including a clinical research study and/or translational research involving human subjects.
  • Deadline: Oct 29
    2021 Conquer Cancer - Breast Cancer Research Foundation Career Development Award (CDA) for Diversity, Inclusion and Breast Cancer Disparities

    The Career Development Award (CDA) for Diversity, Inclusion and Breast Cancer Disparities is designed to address 1) the underrepresentation of minorities and people of color in the oncology workforce and 2) issues of health equity and disparate breast cancer outcomes in underserved and minority communities. This CDA will provide funding to clinical investigators who have received their initial faculty appointment and 1) identify as members of racial and/or ethnic groups historically underrepresented in academic medicine, or 2) promising investigators of any racial and/or ethnic background pursuing a career in breast cancer disparities to establish an independent clinical cancer research program.
  • Deadline: Oct 29
    2021 Conquer Cancer - Breast Cancer Research Foundation Young Investigator Award (YIA) for Diversity, Inclusion and Breast Cancer Disparities

    The Young Investigator Award (YIA) for Diversity, Inclusion and Breast Cancer Disparities is designed to address 1) the underrepresentation of minorities and people of color in the oncology and biomedical workforces and 2) issues of health equity and disparate breast cancer outcomes in underserved and minority communities. The YIA will provide funding to 1) promising investigators who are members of racial and/or ethnic groups historically underrepresented in academic medicine, or 2) promising investigators of any race and /or ethnic background to encourage and promote quality research in clinical oncology with a focus on breast cancer disparities. The purpose of this award is to fund physicians during the transition from a fellowship program to a faculty appointment as they seek to build a career in clinical cancer research.

    Partnership for Accelerating Cancer Therapies (PACT) Clinical Trials RFA 

    The Foundation for the NIH has issued an RFA for novel biomarkers to support the Partnership for Accelerating Cancer Therapies (PACT). The overall goal for this RFA is to solicit clinical trials to partner with the PACT initiative to provide biospecimens for exploratory deep immunoprofiling analysis, employing this standardized set of biomarker assays. The data from this immunoprofiling, along with the necessary de-identified clinical data from the trials, will be placed into the CIDC to continue to build a large body of standardized immunoprofiling data that can be used to validate existing biomarkers for clinical trial and regulatory use, and importantly, to develop new validated biomarkers for these purposes. Development and validation of these biomarkers will allow the immuno-oncology field to more accurately pair patients with novel immunotherapies being developed.
