Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C) is accepting Letters of Intent (LOIs) to support a translational cancer research project that addresses critical problems in colorectal cancer treatment and patient care. The project must include therapeutic interventions for colorectal cancer and deliver near-term patient benefit through investigation by a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional, synergistic Dream Team of expert investigators. The project must be designed to accelerate the application of therapeutic agents to the clinic (i.e., lead to patient involvement within 2-3 years from the beginning of the grant). Proposals for Dream Team research projects must present plans indicating how the work will be translated into the clinic. The ideas should be based on perceived opportunities for success as well as high-priority areas with a critical need for rapid progress beyond current medical care. To maximize creativity, innovation, and collaboration, the Dream Team must include laboratory and clinical researchers, senior and/or young investigators, and senior scientists who have not worked together in the past. No more than 10% indirect cost is allowed.

LOI Deadline: Dec. 1, 2016 by 12:00 p.m. Invited full proposals will be due February 20, 2017 by 12:00 p.m. with award announcement made by March 2017 and grant term start date of July 1, 2017.
