American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grant Projects 2016

The American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grant Pilot Projects Grant provides funds for meritorious cancer research that cannot be readily supported through other funding mechanisms. The primary purpose of the ACS IRG is to provide seed funds for the initiation of promising new projects or novel ideas by junior faculty members that do not have external grant support.

Eligibility: Applicants should have less than six years of experience in an independent research position or faculty appointment and must not currently hold any peer-reviewed funding. Senior faculty and postdoctoral fellows are not eligible to apply.

Application Deadline: April 30, 2016

Florida Academic Cancer Center Alliance (FACCA) Research Development Program 2016

The Florida Academic Cancer Center Alliance (FACCA) invites investigators to apply for pilot funding for collaborative projects. Projects must involve Co-Principal Investigators from at least 2 of the 3 Florida Cancer Centers (Moffitt Cancer Center, UF Health Cancer Center, and Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center). These pilots should ultimately result in collaborative extramural grant applications/awards and/or clinical research studies.

Faculty members are limited to only one application submission as Co-Principal Investigator, per cycle. However, faculty members may be listed as co-investigators and collaborators on additional applications.

Budgets are $50,000/collaborating center per project. Thus, a collaborative project with two centers will be funded in total for $100,000, or for all three centers at $150,000. Awards will be made for a term of twelve months, during which time all funds should be expended. This opportunity is open to all Faculty ranks (Assistant, Associate, or full Professor, or Assistant, Associate, or Senior Member.)

Proposals must be for new project funding and cannot be continuations or extensions of existing funded grants.

Submission Deadlines:

  • Letter of Intent (required): April 1, 2016
  • Full Application: May 2, 2016
  • Award Announcements: June 1, 2016
  • Project Start Date: July 1, 2016

For application, guidelines and a listing of expertise at each of the three centers, please contact:
