|ACS IRG||Junior faculty who do not currently hold a national research grant||Up to $30,000||12/03/2012|
Through an Institutional Research Grant from the American Cancer Society (ACS IRG), the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania will provide seed money grants to junior faculty members (e.g., Assistant Professor within six years of their appointment) to initiate promising new cancer research projects with the object to obtain preliminary data enabling them to compete successfully for national peer-reviewed research grants. Hence, investigators who have a peer-reviewed national research grant are not eligible for this award. Applicants must identify a mentor at the time the application is submitted along with the mentor's NIH Biosketch and brief statement describing mentors' supervisory experience.
Seed money grants from $5,000 to $30,000 will be awarded. Covered costs include laboratory personnel costs (non-faculty), data manager or research nursing support, laboratory supplies, animals, and small equipment; no travel or patient costs are allowed. Projects must have all necessary certifications to be eligible.
* Investigators whose projects highlight global health are also encouraged to apply.
The award period for the ACS IRG grant is for one year, February 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013.
