  •  
    The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Exploratory/Developmental Grant (R21) funding opportunity supports the development of new research activities in all areas of cancer research. The R21 mechanism is intended to encourage exploratory and developmental research projects by providing support for the early and conceptual stages of these projects. These studies may involve considerable risk but may lead to a breakthrough in a particular area, or to the development of novel techniques, agents, methodologies, models, or applications that could have a major impact on a field of cancer research (biomedical, behavioral, or clinical).

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Seeks Proposals for Blood Cancer Research Projects | PND | ... - 0 views

  •  
    The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is accepting Letters of Intent from researchers for projects to identify and develop safer, more effective treatments for patients with blood cancers.

    Through the Quest for Cures initiative, LLS, in partnership with biopharmaceutical company Celgene, will award two-year grants of between $200,000 and $400,000 a year for research projects that have a measurable impact over the next five to ten years on the diagnosis or treatment of patients with hematologic malignancies. Additional funding may be available for projects that have demonstrated exceptional progress in the initial two years.

    Specifically, the initiative will award grants in the following priority areas:

    Tumor cell clonal heterogeneity: This grant will support researchers seeking novel approaches for measuring and monitoring clonal heterogeneity and assessing its contribution to the response or resistance to therapy.

    New molecular stratification mechanisms: Recipients of this grant will work to identify key subsets of patients with B-cell malignancies to help predict which patients will have poor outcomes from current standard therapies so they may be directed to alternative therapies.

    Bone marrow and lymph node microenvironments: Researchers will seek to enhance the understanding of the role that the bone marrow and lymph node microenvironments play in either responding to or resisting therapy.

    The purpose of this FOA is to seek, identify and support bold and innovative approaches to broaden graduate and postdoctoral training, such that training programs reflect the range of career options that trainees (regardless of funding source) ultimately may pursue and that are required for a robust biomedical, behavioral, social and clinical research enterprise. Collaborations with non-academic partners are encouraged to ensure that experts from a broad spectrum of research and research-related careers contribute to coursework, rotations, internships or other forms of exposure. This program will establish a new paradigm for graduate and postdoctoral training; awardee institutions will work together to define needs and share best practices.

Travel Fellowships for Nanotechnologies in Cancer Diagnosis, Therapy, and Prevention - 0 views

  •  
    Harnessing principles from chemistry, biology, physics, and engineering, nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary field still in its infancy. Throughout the past decade, nanoparticles and specifically nanoparticle drug delivery systems, have emerged at the forefront of cancer therapies.

    Nanotechnology has helped to design and fabricate micro-scale devices, including nanoparticle drug delivery systems able to target tumors and other cancerous tissue. Nanotechnology is also being explored to generate other novel techniques to design biomarkers, immunotherapy, and vaccine development for cancer.

    Featuring keynote address by Nobel Laureate Robert Y. Tsien, PhD, this 2.5-day conference will discuss: nanodiagnostics for cancer biomarkers and imaging, nanoparticle toxicity and safety; nanovaccines and nanoimmunotherapeutics; the challenges of targeted delivery in tumors; and nanoparticle-based gene therapy. A discussion of these topics will serve to enhance the translation of research discoveries into improved cancer diagnostic and treatment strategies.

    The deadline for poster abstract submission is Wednesday, April 24, 2013.

    For complete abstract submission instructions, please send an email to NanoMoscow@nyas.org with "Abstract Information" in the subject line. There is no need to type a message; instructions will be forwarded automatically. Please call 212.298.8632 with any questions.

Damon Runyon-Rachleff Innovation Award - 0 views

  •  
     The Damon Runyon-Rachleff Innovation Award 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 or treatment of cancer.

    The Innovation 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. The research supported by the award must be novel, exceptionally creative and, if successful, have the strong potential for high impact in the cancer field.

    The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage applications for projects that bridge biological mechanism to population level scales. By incorporating insights and data from one end of the cancer research spectrum into the framework of the other, projects should be able to cross-validate data gathered at different scales, and explore links between basic biology, population science, and potential health applications in treatment, prevention, diagnosis, and/or screening. Proposed projects should pose a challenging cancer research question that can be addressed by connecting these two ends of the research spectrum that would be difficult to address or explain through biological or epidemiological investigation alone. Only a single cohesive project integrating aspects from these two areas is allowed in each application.

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Invites Research Proposals in Areas of Unmet Medical Need |... - 0 views

  •  
    The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has issued new Requests for Proposals through its Translational Research Program to support researchers in six critical areas of unmet medical need. The RFPs mark LLS's aggressive and proactive approach to addressing the challenge of improving outcomes for cancer patients with particularly urgent needs.

    The LLS Translational Research Program is designed to help accelerate the movement of promising discoveries from lab to clinic. The goal of translational research is to reduce the time between laboratory findings and actual treatment.

    The society aims to stimulate more academic research in the following areas: new immunotherapeutics for patients with acute myelogenous leukemia; novel therapeutics for patients with non-cutaneous T-cell malignancies; introduction of novel agents in the treatment of patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and mantle cell lymphoma; therapies for patients with myelodysplastic syndromes who have failed hypomethylating agents; therapies for new targets such as bromodomains, methylation, and other epigenetic approaches for patients with high-risk myeloma; and research that addresses long-term and late effects of blood cancer therapies.
