The V Foundation for Cancer Research Translational Award
$600,000 Over Three Years
The V Foundation is requesting applications for translational cancer research projects that bring together pre-clinical and clinical investigators. Translational research uses knowledge of human biology to develop and test the feasibility of cancer-relevant interventions in humans and/or determines the biological basis for observations made in individuals with cancer or in populations at risk for cancer. Preference will be given to studies that develop and validate novel agents, strategies and biomarkers for personalized management of cancer.
The Translational Grant is a $600,000 award paid in $200,000 installments over a three-year period. A maximum of ten percent of the grant may be used annually to offset the indirect costs of the project. The project team must have a minimum of two scientists from the same facility, and the team must possess basic and clinical research expertise.
Due to the limit of one grant application per institution, the MCW Foundation Grants & Awards Committee will select a final candidate to submit a full proposal to the V Foundation for Cancer Research.
Submit the following materials by email to Margaret Sobczak, Director of MCW Corporate & Foundation Giving, (firstname.lastname@example.org), by noon (12:00 p.m.) on April 3, 2013:
