American Society of Clinical Oncology - Conquer Cancer Foundation -- Career Development Award
The Career Development Award (CDA) is a research grant that provides funding to clinical investigators who have received their initial faculty appointment to establish an independent clinical cancer research program. The cancer research must have a patient-oriented focus, including a clinical research study and/or translational research involving human subjects. Proposals with a predominant focus on in vitro or animal studies (even if clinically relevant) are not allowed.
The Career Development Award (CDA) is a three-year cancer grant totaling $200,000, paid in three annual increments to the awardee’s institution.
The applicant must be a physician (MD, DO, or international equivalent) who is within the 1st to 3rd year of a full-time, primary faculty appointment in a clinical department at an academic medical institution at the time of grant submission. Grant applications from candidates with existing career development awards (such as K23, K08, or any other type of career development award) will not be considered.
Applications for the 2014 CDA are currently being accepted. The full application must be submitted by 11:59PMEDT on September 26, 2013. Read the 2014 Request for Proposals (RFP) for eligibility criteria and detailed instructions for submitting an application.
