Sylvester Clinical Trial Acceleration Grant

The goal of this program is to support the development of highly innovative, programmatically important investigator initiated, cooperative group or industry sponsored therapeutic trials. While investigator initiated trials, continue to be a high priority, and historically have been underfunded, other types of trials may also test concepts of high value to the programs of the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center (Sylvester) and to the community of cancer patients. In order to rapidly accrue to our cancer clinical trials, funds will be provided to accelerate trials that are highly competitive. Proposals will be assessed three times a year.

  • Budget & Project Period:
  • Each award will be for up to $100,000 and will cover clinical trial costs such as patient care fees, correlative/translational study fees, advertising/marketing fees etc. The grant period is for one year.

Eligibility

Multidisciplinary Research Programs Developmental Program Project Grants

The Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center is pleased to announce the availability of funds to support the development of Program Project grant applications within and between the Multidisciplinary Research Programs.

The NCI Program Project award mechanism is intended solely for the support of integrated, multi-project research programs involving a number of independent, NIH-funded investigators who share knowledge and common resources. The program must have a well-defined, central research focus involving several disciplines or several aspects of one discipline. The individual projects should be interrelated to synergistically enhance research progress.

  • Budget & Project Period:
  • Each award will be for up to $200,000 each year for two years.

Eligibility:

Application must be signed by Program Leader(s) on behalf of the P01 team interested in applying. Only Cancer Center Members may apply. To be eligible for an award, an application must consist of a minimum of three scientifically meritorious projects.
