The annual program is designed to provide support for the next generation of exceptionally creative thinkers with “high-risk/high-reward” ideas that have the potential to significantly impact our understanding of and/or approaches to the prevention, diagnosis, and/or treatment of cancer. The award is specifically designed to provide funding to extraordinary early-career researchers who have an innovative new idea but lack sufficient preliminary data to obtain traditional funding. It is not designed to fund incremental advances in cancer research.
Grants of up to $450,000 over three years will be awarded to support novel, exceptionally creative research with the potential to create significant impact in the cancer field.
To be eligible, applicants (including non-U.S. citizens) must be conducting independent basic or translational/clinical research at a U.S. research institution and be a tenure-track assistant professor within the first four years of obtaining his/her initial assistant professor position; a clinical instructor or senior clinical fellow (in the final year of his/her sub-specialty training) holding an M.D. who is pursuing a period of independent research before taking a tenure-track faculty position; or a distinguished fellow with an exceptional record of research accomplishment identified by his/her institution who has dedicated laboratory space.
