Career Development Award

Funding Agency:
Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network

BCAN recognizes the critical need to support junior investigators who have yet to secure their first major research funding but aim to establish an independent bladder cancer research program and successful career path.

To meet this need, BCAN is pleased to offer the Career Development Award (CDA).

The CDA is a three-year grant totaling $250,000 that will support translational, clinical or epidemiological research that has direct applicability and relevance to bladder cancer. Projects must demonstrate the likelihood of translating new concepts into clinical practice.

Deadline: Oct. 18, 2023
