AACR-CONQUER CANCER®, THE ASCO FOUNDATION YOUNG INVESTIGATOR AWARD FOR TRANSLATIONAL CANCER RESEARCH
The AACR-Conquer Cancer®, the ASCO Foundation Young Investigator Award for Translational Cancer Research provides funding to promising investigators to encourage and promote quality research in translational oncology. The purpose of this jointly-supported award is to fund a physician-scientist during the transition from a fellowship program to a faculty appointment. Research projects are restricted to translational cancer research.
The award provides $50,000 over one year for expenses related to the research project. A partial amount of funds may be designated for non-personnel expenses, such as research/laboratory supplies, equipment, publication charges for manuscripts that pertain directly to the funded project, and other research expenses.
Deadline: Oct. 31, 2023
At the start of the grant term on July 1, 2024, applicants must:
- Be in the last two years of their final subspecialty training and within ten years of obtaining their medical degree. (i.e., degree cannot have been conferred before July 1, 2014; the formal date of receipt of doctoral degree is the date the degree was conferred, as indicated on their diploma and/or transcript).
- Examples of subspecialty training include, but are not limited to, a hematology-oncology fellowship, a surgical oncology fellowship, or a radiation oncology residency.
- Have a valid, active medical license in the country where the research will be conducted.
- Have a mentor in the proposed research field from the sponsoring institution; the mentor must assume responsibility and provide guidance for the research.
- Be able to commit at least 60% of full-time effort in research (applies to total research, not just the proposed project) during the grant term.
- Be planning an investigative career in clinical oncology.
- Work in an oncology laboratory or clinical research setting at an academic medical institution anywhere in the world.
