PA-18-504: Academic Research Enhancement Award (Parent R15 Clinical Trial Not Allowed) - 0 views

  •  
    The purpose of the Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA) program is to stimulate research in educational institutions that provide baccalaureate or advanced degrees for a significant number of the Nation's research scientists, but that have not been major recipients of NIH support. AREA grants create opportunities for scientists and institutions otherwise unlikely to participate extensively in NIH research programs to contribute to the Nation's biomedical and behavioral research effort. AREA grants are intended to support small-scale research projects proposed by faculty members of eligible, domestic institutions, to expose undergraduate and/or graduate students to meritorious research projects, and to strengthen the research environment of the applicant institution.

About the Fund - Jane Coffin Childs Memorial Fund - 0 views

  •  
    The Jane Coffin Childs Memorial Fund for Medical Research was established in 1937 for the purpose of supporting research into the causes and treatment of cancer. The fund has taken a broad approach to the study of cell growth and development, emphasizing the study of the basic biology and chemistry of the underlying processes, and increasingly has focused its resources on the funding of three-year postdoctoral fellowships, supporting fellows selected by its board of scientific advisers from among the best young scientists at what is often a critical stage in their careers. As a result, there have been more than sixteen hundred Jane Coffin Childs fellows doing basic cancer-related research in laboratories in North America, Europe, Japan, and Australia.
    To advance its mission, the JCC Fund is accepting applications for its fellowship program. The fund supports between twenty-five and thirty new three-year cancer research fellowships every year. The current fellowship stipend levels are $52,000 for year one; $52,500 for year two; and $53,000 for year three.

PAR-18-248: Quantitative Imaging Tools and Methods for Cancer Therapy Response Assessme... - 0 views

  •  
    This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages research project applications under the cooperative agreement (UG3/UH3) mechanism to address the development, optimization and validation of quantitative imaging (QI) software tools and methods for prediction and/or measurement of response to cancer therapies or for planning and validating radiation therapy treatment strategies in clinical trials.



    The scientific scope of this FOA includes:

    · Development and optimization of QI tools and/or methods for treatment planning, predicting or measuring response to therapy as open source tools that will translate into clinical trial decision support;

    · Validation of the optimized tools in clinical settings to demonstrate their value for decision support in ongoing single-site or multi-site clinical trials.



    A phased approach that emphasizes each of these activities must be proposed. Investigators must apply for both the UG3 and UH3 phases together in the single application. The UG3 effort is to be used for the development and optimization of QI tools and methods chosen for study by the investigating team, while the UH3 phase is for the validation of the tools/methods developed in the UG3 phase. The UG3 phase can be no more than 2 years in duration, and the total project cannot exceed 5 years. At completion, UG3 projects will be reviewed by program staff. Those that have met their milestones may be administratively considered by NCI program staff for transition to the UH3 validation phase.

Medical Research Fellows Program | HHMI.org - 0 views

  •  
    The Medical Research Fellows Program enables students to be immersed in a high-impact, intensive research experience at a critical time in their professional education, before they make plans for residency or postdoctoral training. Unique aspects of the program include national and regional professional development activities, mentorship by physician-scientists, interaction with HHMI investigators, and integration into a community of like-minded peers.

    Each student selects and works with a mentor to develop a basic, translational, or applied biomedical research proposal. Both mentor selection and the research proposal are key components of the fellowship application; working with an HHMI scientist is encouraged but not required. Mentors can be at any academic or nonprofit research institution in the United States (excluding the National Institutes of Health and any other government agency) or at HHMI's Janelia Research Campus in Ashburn, VA.
