Applicants must have a doctoral degree (PhD, MD, MD/PhD, or equivalent) in a related field and not currently be a candidate for a further doctoral degree.
Applications will be
accepted from independent investigators who are affiliated with an
institution that currently holds an active MTA with Novocure for use of its
devices, or an institution that will enter into a MTA with Novocure.
Investigators may submit only one application for the AACR-Novocure Tumor Treating Fields Research Grants but may concurrently apply for other AACR grants. However, applicants are expected to accept the first grant they are awarded. Individuals may accept and hold only one AACR grant at a time.
Employees or subcontractors of a U.S. government entity or for-profit private industry are not eligible. Employees or subcontractors of a U.S. government entity or for‐profit private industry may serve as Collaborators, but no grant funds may be directed towards these individuals.
Any individual who currently holds an active AACR grant may not apply. Past AACR grantees may apply if they complied with all progress and financial report requirements.
Postdoctoral or clinical research fellows or the equivalent who are working under the auspices of a scientific mentor are not eligible to apply. Qualified fellows are invited to apply for an AACR Fellowship.
All applicants with questions about eligibility should contact the AACR's Scientific Review and Grants Administration Department at firstname.lastname@example.org before submitting an application.
