Komen: Career Catalyst Research Grants (CCR)
$450,000 combined direct and indirect costs; ($150,000 per year for up to 3 years)
CCR Grants provide unique opportunities for scientists who have held faculty positions for no more than six years at the time of full application to achieve research independence. CCR grants provide support for hypothesis-driven research projects that have significant potential to advance our understanding of breast cancer, lead to reductions in breast cancer incidence and/or mortality, and move us toward the goal of a world without breast cancer.
This grant mechanism is appropriate for both basic (i.e. PhD) or clinical (i.e. MD) fellows proposing research projects that are laboratory- or field- based and do not meet Komen's definition of clinical research. Studies focusing on quality of life or survivorship issues are not appropriate for this mechanism. A separate CCR-Clinical Research RFA is available for junior clinical faculty proposing clinical research studies on breast cancer.
