Description

The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), on behalf of Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) and The Farrah Fawcett Foundation, calls upon members of the cancer community to contribute their ideas to the groundbreaking SU2C-Farrah Fawcett Foundation Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Translational Research Team Grant.

We invite submission of ideas for a multidisciplinary translational cancer research project that addresses critical problems in HPV-related cancers and that can deliver near-term patient benefit through investigation by a Team of two expert investigators. The selected grant will include a translational component, and have the potential for a significant impact for patients with HPV-related cancers. The proposal should include clear plans indicating how the work will be translated into the clinic and deliver near-term benefits to patients with HPV-related cancers. Examples of research areas of interest may include: new promising treatment modalities; molecular mechanisms by which HPV causes cancer to develop and metastasize; development of a new generation of targeted treatments; or, improved or novel methods of either diagnosing HPV-related cancers or monitoring the effects of treatment.

This grant will provide $1 million over three years. The Team may be either inter- or intra-institutional, and both scientists on the Team must hold tenure-track academic appointments. The ideas should be based on perceived opportunities for success as well as high-priority areas with a critical need for rapid progress beyond current medical care. The collective ideas for Team translational research projects suggested by the cancer community will assist the SU2C-Farrah Fawcett Foundation Joint Scientific Advisory Committee (JSAC) in selecting the most promising ideas to be submitted as full research proposals. The Committee will select a SU2C-Farrah Fawcett Foundation Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Translational Research Team Grant from the invited proposals.

Eligibility Criteria

The Team may be either inter- or intra-institutional, and both scientists on the Team must hold tenure-track academic appointments. The ideas should be based on perceived opportunities for success as well as high-priority areas with a critical need for rapid progress beyond current medical care.
