American Cancer Society – Institutional Research Award Subgrants

April 26, 2019 by


The American Cancer Society has awarded the University of Virginia Cancer Center an Institutional Research Award. The major objective of the Institutional Research
Award is to support the development of newly independent investigators to conduct cancer research including basic, translational, psychosocial and behavioral research, and cancer care for the economically disadvantaged.
Grants will be awarded to faculty members who are citizens or noncitizen nationals of the U.S. or have been admitted to the U.S. for permanent residence. Investigators must be
within 6 years of their first independent research or faculty appointment. Senior investigators or postdoctoral fellows are not eligible. Investigators are strongly encouraged to contact Dr. Roger Abounader ( if they have any questions about eligibility.
Three awards will be made up to a maximum of $30,000. Individual allocations can be used for equipment, consumable supplies and limited technical support (the ACS discourages the use of Institutional Grant Funds for the support of full-time technical help.)
The deadline for submission of applications is 5:00 PM on Sunday, May 26, 2019.
