The inaugural AACR-KidneyCAN Kidney Cancer Innovation and Discovery Grants is a new grant mechanism that seeks to stimulate creative approaches to translate basic research into new treatment options for kidney cancer.

Applications are invited from researchers currently in the field as well as investigators with experience in other areas of cancer or biomedical research who have promising ideas and approaches that can be applied to kidney cancer research.

The grants provide $50,000 over one year for expenses related to the research project, which may include salary and benefits of the grant recipient and any collaborators, postdoctoral or clinical research fellows, graduate students (including tuition costs associated with graduate students’ education and training), or research assistants; research/laboratory supplies; equipment; publication charges for manuscripts that pertain directly to the funded project; and other research expenses. Indirect costs are not allowed.
