LUSTGARTEN FOUNDATION-SWIM ACROSS AMERICA-AACR PANCREATIC CANCER EARLY DETECTION RESEARCH GRANT
The Lustgarten Foundation-Swim Across America-AACR Pancreatic Cancer Early Detection Research Grant represents a joint effort to support innovative research to advance efforts towards the early detection and interception of pancreatic cancer.
Applications from investigators with experience in other areas of cancer or biomedical research who have promising ideas and approaches that can be applied to pancreatic cancer research are especially encouraged.
The grant provides $300,000 over three years for expenses related to the research project, which may include salary and benefits of the grant recipient, 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 permitted.
Grantees supported through this Program will have the opportunity to interact and/or collaborate with other investigators from the network of Lustgarten Foundation-funded investigators and laboratories as well as leading investigators in the AACR.
