2021 AACR-MPM Oncology Charitable Foundation Transformative Cancer Research Grants are not accepting letters of intent. This funding opportunity is open to current grantees.

This grant program provides $400,000 to support innovative early- and mid-career researchers conducting “high-risk, high-reward”, paradigm-shifting cancer research projects that might not be funded through conventional channels.

Proposed projects should catalyze significant scientific discoveries that will advance our understanding of cancer and have a potentially transformative impact on future clinical practice, and may be basic, translational, or clinical in nature.

LOI Deadline is Tuesday, June 29, 2021 at 1pm ET.

If you are interested, please be sure to thoroughly review the Program Guidelines and Application Instructions available on the grant web page for full details.

Service Contract Survey Request

On behalf of the Office of Vice Chancellor for Research, we are asking for participating in a brief survey on service contracts.

We have a large number of service contracts on the CU Anschutz campus for small, medium, and large equipment some requiring regular repair and/or yearly certification. With a more organized and coordinated effort across campus, we will have significant cost savings for individual investigators as well as larger units.

This survey is to determine if you would you be interested in working with procurement to negotiate lower prices for your existing service contracts.  We would like to learn more about your service contracts options and experiences.

Your responses will inform us on the various options the University can explore in order to better meet your needs in both service quality and costs.

This survey will be sent as a two-part survey.

Begin the initial survey, which is meant to gather information on those interested in moving forward with this plan and will take less than 5 minutes to complete.

Thanks in advance for your time.

This bulletin is distributed on the 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month for the CU Anschutz Research Community.   

Past Research Bulletins can be found here.
