The National Lung Cancer Partnership Announces the Opening of the Application Period for Two Award Programs
National Lung Cancer Partnership/ LUNGevity Foundation Research Grants for the promotion of understanding lung cancer risk, biology, and response to treatment. This grant program, administered by the National Lung Cancer Partnership and co-funded with the LUNGevity Foundation, is designed to provide seed money for promising novel research in lung cancer for faculty members at any point in their careers, performing research at any institution world-wide. Research Grants will be awarded for one or two years, for up to $50,000 per year ($100,000 maximum over 2 years). Two grants are available:
* One is specifically for research in the area of sex differences in lung cancer.
* One is for research pertaining to any facet of lung cancer.
National Lung Cancer Partnership Career Development Award for junior clinical and basic investigators involved in lung cancer etiology, prevention, and treatment at any U.S. or Canadian research institution. The National Lung Cancer Partnership's goal is to create a critical mass of lung cancer researchers to ensure that basic and behavioral research discoveries are effectively translated into patient therapies to reduce lung cancer incidence, morbidity and mortality. Applicants will be judged on the merits of their research proposal, career development plan, and research environment, among other factors. Applicants must be post-doctoral fellows, or within the first five years of a faculty appointment. Career Development Awards will be awarded for one or two years, for up to $50,000 per year ($100,000 maximum over 2 years).
