AACR Myeloma Research Fellowship

Funding Agency:
American Association for Cancer Research

The AACR Myeloma Research Fellowship represents a joint effort to encourage and support postdoctoral or clinical research fellows to conduct myeloma research and to establish a successful career path in this field. The research proposed for funding may be basic, translational, clinical, or epidemiological in nature and must have direct applicability and relevance to myeloma.

These fellowships provide one-year grants of $55,000 to support the salary and benefits of the Fellow while working on mentored, multiple myeloma 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.

It is anticipated that one fellowship will be funded.

Deadline: Nov. 30, 2017

Eligibility Requirements

At the start of the grant term on July 1, 2018, applicants must have completed their most recent doctoral degree or medical residency within the past five years and work under the auspices of a mentor at an academic, medical, or research institution anywhere in the world.

Applicants must have a medical and/or doctoral degree (including PhD, MD, DO, DC, ND, DDS, DVM, ScD, DNS, PharmD, or equivalent doctoral degree) in a related field and not currently be a candidate for a further doctoral or professional degree.

Applicants with a medical degree must have completed his or her 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).

Any individual who currently holds an active AACR grant may not apply. Past grantees may apply if they complied with all progress and financial report requirements.
