Description

The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), on behalf of Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) and the Dutch Cancer Society - KWF Kankerbesrtijding (KWF), is accepting applications for a Sta Op Tegen Kanker Dream Team Translational Cancer Research Grant that will offer up to 6 million in research funding.

The grant provides four years of funding for a translational cancer research project that will address critical problems in patient care and deliver near-term patient benefit through investigation by a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional team of expert investigators. Research projects must be designed to accelerate the application of new preventive, diagnostic or therapeutic agents to the clinic, and may focus on particular organ sites or on specialized research areas.

Proposals for the Sta Op Tegen Kanker Dream Team Translational Cancer Research Grant must describe plans indicating how the work will be translated into the clinic. To maximize creativity, innovation and collaboration, the projects should span multiple disciplines and use modern biological tools to attack research questions in a coordinated way.
