AACR-DAY ONE BIOPHARMACEUTICALS PEDIATRIC CANCER RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP
The AACR-Day One Biopharmaceuticals Pediatric Cancer Research Fellowship represents a joint effort to encourage and support postdoctoral or clinical research fellows to conduct pediatric cancer research and to establish a successful career path in this field. The research proposed for funding must have direct applicability to pediatric cancer and may be basic, translational, or clinical in nature.
Each fellowship provides a two-year grant of $120,000 to support the salary and benefits of the fellow while working on a mentored pediatric cancer 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. Grant funds cannot be used for indirect costs.
Deadline: July 6, 2022
Applicants must have a doctoral degree (including PhD, MD, MD/PhD, or equivalent) in a related field and not currently be a candidate for a further doctoral degree.
