Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation-AACR Grant

Funding Agency:
American Association for Cancer Research

The Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation-AACR Grant represents a joint effort to promote and support innovative cancer research. This grant is available to independent junior and senior investigators to develop and study new ideas and innovative approaches that have direct application and relevance to neuroendocrine tumors. Proposed research may be in any discipline of basic, translational, clinical, or epidemiological cancer research.

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 neuroendocrine tumor research.

Deadline: Jan. 9, 2018

Eligibility Requirements

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

Applications will be accepted from independent investigators at all levels who are affiliated with an academic, medical or research institution anywhere in the world.

Employees or subcontractors of a U.S. government entity or for-profit private industry are not eligible. Employees or subcontractors of a U.S. government entity or for‐profit private industry may serve as Collaborators, but no grant funds may be directed towards these individuals.

Any individual who currently holds an active AACR grant may not apply. Current recipients of a Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation grant not administered by the AACR may apply, but may not request funding for costs already supported by the existing grant. Past grantees may apply if they complied with all progress and financial report requirements.

Investigators may submit only one application for the Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation-AACR Grant but may concurrently apply for other AACR grants. However, applicants are expected to accept the first grant they are awarded. Individuals may accept and hold only one AACR grant at a time.

Postdoctoral or clinical research fellows or the equivalent who are working under the auspices of a scientific mentor are not eligible to apply. Qualified fellows are invited to apply for an AACR Fellowship.
