The Duke Funding Alert newsletter, published every Monday, provides information on all new and updated grants and fellowships added to the database during the prior week. This listserv is restricted to members of the Duke community.
Our goal is to support research that seeks to answer the difficult questions in cancer biology. We are looking for innovative and truly novel ideas that have the potential to revolutionise our understanding of cancer and how to beat it.
We award project grants of 12 to 36 months in length to support basic, fundamental or translational research into the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of cancer. We do not prioritise any field of research within this; we welcome research that draws on epidemiological, behavioural and clinical data to provide a starting point for a new avenue of research. Multidisciplinary or discipline-hopping projects are encouraged where this helps stimulate innovation.
The research described in your application should be a discrete, hypothesis-driven project, achievable within the duration of the support requested. Do not describe a large programme of work - for example the work of your entire laboratory - and then request a contribution towards it - for example funding one member of the laboratory or part of the consumable costs.
This opportunity is limited to DCI members.
Deadline: April 2, 2021
We award project grants from 12 to 36 months in length to principal investigators based at any not-for-profit research institute in the world.
The principal investigator must be a suitably qualified researcher (minimum of PhD followed by three years research experience, or equivalent qualification or research experience).
A research group can only submit one application per grant round. For example, if you are the PI on an application, no member of your research group can be a PI on a second application in the same round. If, at any stage of a grant round, multiple PIs are found to be from the same research group, all the applications will be rejected immediately, and the group may be barred from applying in future. You can be PI on one application and a co-applicant or collaborator on other applications in the same grant round.
The maximum budget allowed is £250,000, but it should be noted that most of the three-year grants we award have a budget below £200,000.
