Prostate Cancer Foundation 2014 PCF Global Treatment Sciences (GTSN) Challenge Award

Application Due Date(s): September 22, 2014

How to Apply: Click here to download the PDF

Description: The Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) is pleased to announce a Request for Applications for lethal prostate cancer. This award focuses on funding Treatment Sciences: Investigations to support the correlative research around either clinical trials of novel agents or strategies or standard of care. One emphasis is on developing or validating biomarkers that guide therapy in patients or further our understanding of the mechanism by which therapies work. While the emphasis is on research in humans, the actual trials or treatments themselves will not be supported. Human samples are highly preferred although at times model systems might be required to complement our understanding. High risk, first-in-field and currently unfunded projects are most desired.

This award provides up to $1 million dollars per team over a period of two to three years and will cover direct costs only.

How to Apply: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-12-039.html

Description: This funding opportunity announcement (FOA), issued by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), encourages the submission of Small Research Grant (R03) applications for research on cancer etiology and epidemiology. The overarching goal of this FOA is to provide support for pilot projects, testing of new techniques, secondary analyses of existing data, development and validation of measurement methods, linkage of genetic polymorphisms with other variables related to cancer risk, and development of innovative projects for more comprehensive research in cancer etiology and epidemiology.

Using the NIH Small Research Grant (R03) funding mechanism, this FOA focuses on different types of projects including, but not limited to: (1) pilot and feasibility studies; (2) secondary analysis of existing data; (3) small, self-contained research projects; (4) development of research methodology; and (5) development of new research technology. The R03 mechanism is critical for collection of pilot data that can be used for larger grant applications such as the Research Project Grant Mechanism (R01). R01 studies in cancer epidemiology usually require large sample sizes, complex logistics, extensive fieldwork, acquisition of biospecimens, and, sometimes, the acquisition of sensitive information such as reproductive histories.

Center for Inherited Disease Research (CIDR) High Throughput Genotyping and Sequencing Resource Access (X01)

ID: PAR-11-210

How to Apply: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-11-210.html

Application Due Date: Applications are accepted by continuous receipt.

Description: This FOA is seeking projects that show promise of identifying genetic element(s) important to human health and disease. CIDR high-throughput genotyping, sequencing and supporting statistical genetics services are designed to aid the identification of genes that contribute to human health and disease. The services provided through CIDR focus primarily on needs that can’t be readily handled by individual investigator laboratories. CIDR provides the most up-todate platforms and services. This is an NIH-wide initiative that is managed by NHGRI. There should be strong evidence that the project proposed is likely to have the power to detect genetic factors affecting the trait under study. In addition, there should be a clear need for the particular high-throughput service requested. Appropriate projects would include but not be limited to: Human GWAS studies for common human diseases; human and mouse genome-wide linkage analyses, whole genome sequencing, whole-exome and custom-targeted DNA sequencing, analyses of DNA methylation and custom SNP genotyping. Offered through the National Cancer Institute.
