AACR-MIRATI CANCER CHEMICAL BIOLOGY RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP
The AACR-Mirati Cancer Chemical Biology Research Fellowship represents a joint effort to encourage and support postdoctoral or clinical research fellow to conduct chemical biology research directed at developing novel approaches to targeting the difficult-to-drug cancer drivers and to establish a successful career path in this field. The research proposed for funding should be basic or translational in nature.
This fellowship provides two-year grants of $120,000 to support the salary and benefits of the fellow while working on mentored chemical biology 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.
