Funding Opportunities for Cancer Research

ACS IRG Program
The Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania holds an American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grant (ACS IRG) to support seed money grants to faculty to conduct innovative cancer research projects that have the potential for future peer review funding. Only junior investigators, defined as faculty within eight years of their first independent faculty appointment or equivalent (e.g., Assistant Professor, Research Assistant Professor), are eligible to apply. Investigators who have already received a peer-reviewed national research grant and investigators who have received prior support from the ACS Institutional Research Grant are not eligible. Non-faculty (e.g., residents, fellows) are not eligible. Next Deadline: December 10, 2004.

Cancer Center Pilot Projects Program
The Cancer Center Pilot Projects Program funds innovative cancer research projects that have the potential for future peer-review funding. All full-time University faculty are eligible to apply for the Cancer Center Pilot Projects Program. The proposed area of research cannot be funded through an existing or prior peer-reviewed national research grant (i.e., NIH, ACS, DOD). Non-faculty (e.g., residents, fellows) are not eligible. Next Deadline: December 10, 2004.

Cancer Center Collaborative Pilot Projects Program
The Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania announces the availability of Cancer Center Collaborative Pilot Projects Program. The Cancer Center will provide Collaborative Pilot Project Grants up to $75,000 for Penn faculty members to conduct cancer-related research projects. Proposals must be submitted by two or more Penn faculty members. All full-time University faculty are eligible to apply. The Cancer Center Collaborative Pilot Projects Program funds innovative, collaborative cancer research projects that have the potential for future peer-review funding. The proposed area of research cannot be funded through an existing or prior research grant. Among the factors of high value to the scientific reviewers will be: translational research impact, new collaborations (researchers have not previously worked together), researchers representing more than one discipline or department, novelty of the research concept, and research addressing a high priority area. The award period will be one year from the date of the award notice from the Cancer Center; award notices will not be issued until projects are approved by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Next Deadline: December 10, 2004.

Submissions through the Abramson Cancer Center's website at www.penncancer.org/grants.
