Conquer Cancer Foundation: Inviting Applicants for Career Development Award (CDA)

Deadline: 21 September 2017

The Conquer Cancer Foundation (CCF) is currently seeking proposals for its Career Development Award (CDA) to provide research funding to clinical investigators, who have received their initial faculty appointment, as they work to establish an independent clinical cancer research program. This research must have a patient-oriented focus, including a clinical research study and/or translational research involving human subjects. Proposals with a predominant focus on in vitro or animal studies (even if clinically relevant) are not allowed.

Award Information

  • The CDA is a three-year grant totaling $200,000 to pay for personnel and/or research expenses, and travel to attend the CCF Grants and Awards Ceremony at the ASCO Annual Meeting.
  • The number of CDA grants in each funding cycle is not predetermined by the Conquer Cancer Foundation.
  • Awards are given based on individual merit and availability of funds.

Eligibility Criteria

Applicants must meet the following criteria to qualify for the Career Development Award:

  • Be a physician (MD, DO of international equivalent) working in any country.
  • Be in the first to third year of a full-time primary faculty appointment in a clinical department at an academic medical institution at the time of grant submission. Faculty appointment may begin with the entry-level faculty position within the applicant’s institution (i.e., Instructor/Lecturer, Assistant Professor, Assistant Member).
  • Have a valid, active medical license in the country where the research will be conducted at the time of application.
  • Have completed productive postdoctoral research and demonstrated the ability to undertake independent investigator-initiated clinical research.
  • Be an ASCO Member or have submitted a membership application with the grant application.
  • Be able to commit more than 50% of full-time effort in research (applies to total research, not just the proposed project) during the award period.
  • Have a mentor from the sponsoring institution who must provide a letter of support. If the mentor is not an ASCO Member, a supporting letter from an ASCO Member from the sponsoring institution must be included.
  • Eligible physicians are allowed to hold only one grant from the Conquer Cancer Foundation at a time.
  • Should not have any current career development awards (e.g., K23, K08, or any other type of career development award) and have not been a Principal Investigator on any large project grants (e.g., R01 or international equivalent, or private foundation grants). Past recipients of training fellowships (e.g., Young Investigator Award or an F32 grant) are eligible.
  • Be up-to-date and in compliance with all requirements (e.g., progress reports, final reports, budget summaries, IRB approvals, etc.) of any past grants received from the Conquer Cancer Foundation.
