The Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center is pleased to announce the availability of seed grant funds from its American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grant. The ACS IRG is a block grant that allows the Buffett Cancer Center to make smaller awards to beginning independent investigators in all areas of cancer research.
One-year seed grants of up to $50,000 are available. This seed grant program is intended to support junior faculty in initiating cancer research projects, so they can generate preliminary results that will allow them to compete successfully for national funding. Eligible investigators include those within six years of their first independent faculty appointment, who do not currently hold research grant support from national funding agencies.
Proposals must be prepared using the application template provided, and emailed as a single, complete PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to submit applications is 11:59 pm CT on Friday, April 17, 2020. Complete proposal eligibility requirements, guidelines, and instructions are included in the RFA available at: https://unmc.edu/cancercenter/research/research-funding-opp.html
