MCW Cancer Center FY 2013 seed grant announcements
Nov. 19, 2012 College News - Seed grants are critical to the development of novel ideas and projects, new investigators, and the future of cancer research. Seed grants provide investigators with the initial support they need to further their science, collect data, publish, and secure peer-reviewed funding.
We are excited to announce a brand new Cancer Center seed grant opportunity, made possible by a gift from the Rosenberg family through the Froedtert Hospital Foundation. The Thomas A. and Lorraine M. Rosenberg Award for Translational Cancer Research is a new award created to support investigators focused on the translation of basic research findings to a clinically relevant setting. The Rosenberg Award provides $80,000 over two years.
We are also proud to announce two returning seed grant opportunities.
The Basic Research Seed Grants in Breast and Prostate Cancer are made possible by a generous gift from the Wisconsin Breast Cancer Showhouse (WBCS). WBCS supports innovative basic research projects on breast and prostate cancer, and funds three awards with a maximum award amount of $100,000 over two years.
The Translational Research Seed Grants in Breast/Prostate Cancer are made possible by the State of Wisconsin Income Tax Check-Off Program. The State of Wisconsin Income Tax Check-Off Program provides funds for translational and clinical research projects in breast or prostate cancer. Priority is given to projects that facilitate the translation of findings from basic science research to the clinic. The maximum award is $50,000 for one year and we anticipate awarding three grants.
