UCCC Funding Opportunity in Aging and Cancer

DEADLINE EXTENDED

The University of Colorado Cancer Center is interested in promoting the development of collaborative research initiatives among Cancer Center members in the area of Aging and Cancer.

Priority will be given to applications that are multi-disciplinary, impactful to the catchment and beyond, and that leverage strengths of our research community. Proposals must be collaborative, and the lead PI(s) must be a Cancer Center member1.

New collaborations as well as those that are ongoing, but that have not yet received national-level funding will be considered. Priority will be given to proposals that have a high likelihood of leading to NCI or other national peer-reviewed cancer research funding. Priority will also be given to applications that engage the community or focus on under-represented or high priority groups within the catchment area (Colorado). Funding for these projects is from the Cancer Center Programs, the Associate Director for Basic Research (H. Ford), the Associate Director for Population Sciences (C. Bradley), and the CSU Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging (N. Ehrhart).

Projects will be awarded for 1 year only, and recipients will be expected to submit competitive national grant proposals within 6 months following the completion of this scope of work.

Anticipated awards: 3-4 projects at $40-50K each. The budget should be split across collaborating labs.

Email an electronic copy of your application (pdf format) to Jason Quinn by 5:00 pm January 22, 2021

If you have any questions about the application process, please call or email Michaela Montour  (303-724-3151); for questions about research scope or other science related inquiries, contact James DeGregori.
