- American Association for Cancer Research (AACR): AACR NextGen Grants for Transformative Cancer Research | Applications due November 23, 2015
American Association for Cancer Research (AACR): AACR NextGen Grants for Transformative Cancer Research
These Grants represent a new AACR funding initiative to stimulate highly innovative research from young investigators. This grant mechanism is intended to promote and support creative, paradigm-shifting cancer research that, because of its very nature, may not otherwise be funded through existing channels. It is anticipated that the projects funded through this mechanism will have the potential to lead to major breakthroughs in the field.
Applicants must have a 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. AACR membership is required. At the start of the grant term on July 1, 2016, applicants must have held a fulltime, tenure-track appointment at the rank of assistant professor for no more than three years and work at an academic, medical, or research institution anywhere in the world.
The grants provide $450,000 over three years ($150,000 per year) for expenses related to the research project, which may include salary and benefits of the grant recipient, postdoctoral or clinical research fellows, graduate students and/or research assistants, research/laboratory supplies, equipment, travel applicable to the research project, publication charges for manuscripts that pertain directly to the funded project, and other research expenses.

- Concern Foundation: CONquer canCER Now Award | Applications due December 9, 2015
Concern Foundation: CONquer canCER Now Award
Concern Foundation targets promising individuals and provides critically needed "seed" money for innovative projects. Concern Foundation bridges the gap that currently exists in the scientific research community. Proposals must be hypothesis driven and centered on cancer genetics, cancer epidemiology, or behavioral studies. Grants will only be awarded to independent investigators who are at the start of their scientific career (i.e., junior faculty) and are at the level of Assistant Professor (or equivalent with explanation). Applicant who is PI on an existing R01 or equivalent is not eligible. Applicant who is notified prior to the full Concern grant submission deadline of a clearly fundable score on an R01 or equivalent grant-in-review where he/she is PI is also not eligible.
The total grant amount for a Conquer Cancer Now Award is $60,000 for a period of one year, subject to continued funding of an additional $60,000 for the second year. Consideration for a second year of funding is based on sufficient progress (as determined by the required progress report) and available funds. Concern will not fund overhead costs, indirect costs, or similar fees or charges levied by an institution. Funds are not provided for equipment. All funds are to be distributed only for salaries and supplies directly related to the funded research.

- Hope Funds for Cancer Research: Postdoctoral Fellowship | Applications due January 28, 2016
Hope Funds for Cancer Research: Postdoctoral Fellowship
The Hope Funds for Cancer Research is offering fellowships to postdoctoral scientists who propose to work on highly innovative research projects that challenge the traditional paradigms of understanding the causes, mechanisms, progression, disease markers or risk factors of the most difficult-to-treat cancers, including pancreatic, lung, liver, sarcomas, esophageal, brain, gastric, bone and ovarian cancers; and rare leukemia, lymphomas and MDS. Candidates must conduct their proposed research under a sponsor who holds a formal appointment at the host institution.
The Hope Funds for Cancer Research is awarding three-year fellowships with a stipend of $48,000 for the first year, $50,000 for the second year, and $52,000 for the third year. A travel grant of $1,500 will be awarded each year to each grantee for the purpose of attending conferences and/or scientific training meetings. All awards and stipends are made to the institution for the support of the designated fellow.
