V Foundation cancer research funding, internal deadline March 1

The V Foundation for Cancer Research – Translational Awards provide up to $200,000 per year for three years to fund projects that intend to develop novel, translational approaches to the prevention, detection and treatment of human cancer. Translational projects should move a novel strategy from the laboratory into a human clinical trial or use specimens from a clinical trial to develop biomarkers or mechanisms. All nominated applicants must be tenure-track faculty leading a Translational Award research team.

Two applications are permitted per institution if at least one of the two nominee applicants is submitting a research project that focuses on the biological basis of cancer disparities experienced by patients from minority ethnic or racial populations in cancer causes, aggressiveness, treatment or relapse. If you are interested in applying, please submit your CV,  a 1-5 page research summary, and a letter of support by Wednesday, March 1 using the OHSU Competitive Application Portal (CAP). Two candidates selected by OHSU will have until May 2, 2017 to submit their full application to the Foundation.
