Seed funding available for junior faculty in cancer-related research

The Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, with funds from its American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grant, will provide seed money to foster cancer research by junior faculty who have no current national grant support of their own. Investigators in the CWRU School of Medicine, University Hospitals of Cleveland and Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine as well as in other schools and colleges affiliated with Case Western Reserve University are eligible. Grants, not to exceed $30,000, will be awarded to investigators who intend to gather preliminary data to be used in seeking future and independently funded programs. A portion of ACS IRG funds is set aside for special interest awards in adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancers.

The deadline for letters of intent has been updated to Monday, August 26. Contact or John Pounardjian at 216.368.0846 with any questions.
