AACR-Janssen Fellowship in Cancer Interception Research

Funding Agency:
American Association for Cancer Research

The AACR-Janssen Fellowship in Cancer Interception Research represents a joint effort to encourage and support a postdoctoral or clinical research fellow to conduct basic, translational, clinical, or epidemiological research in the field of cancer interception, which encompasses the areas of prevention, early detection, and early intervention, and to establish a successful career path in this field.

This fellowship provides a two-year grant of $110,000 to support the salary and benefits of the fellow while working on mentored cancer interception research. 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: Nov. 1, 2017

If eligibility is based on a future position, the position must be confirmed at the time of application, and CANNOT be contingent upon receiving this grant.

Applicants with a medical degree must have completed their most recent doctoral degree or medical residency - whichever date is later - within the past five years (time spent in medical specialty or subspecialty training is not considered part of medical residency and will be counted against the five-year window).

Investigators may submit only one application for the AACR-Janssen Fellowship in Cancer Interception Research but may concurrently apply for other AACR grants. However, applicants are expected to accept the first grant they are awarded. Individuals may accept and hold only one AACR grant at a time.
