Conquer Cancer Foundation: Career Development Award

The Conquer Cancer Foundation was created by the American Society of Clinical Oncology. The Career Development Award (CDA) is a research grant that provides funding to clinical investigators who have received their initial faculty appointment to establish an independent clinical cancer research program. The cancer 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. Grant is paid to the awardee’s institution.

The applicant must be a physician (MD, DO, or international equivalent) who is within the 1st to 3rd year of a full-time, primary faculty appointment in a clinical department at an academic medical institution at the time of grant submission. Grant applications from candidates with existing career development awards (such as K23, K08, or any other type of career development award) will not be considered.

Application Deadline: September 24, 2015 by 11:59pm EST. Application Guidelines for the award can be found here: http://www.conquercancerfoundation.org/cancer-professionals/funding-opportunities/career-development-award
