Komen: Postdoctoral Fellowship Grants (PDF);
Postdoctoral Fellowship Grants (PDF);
Up to $180,000 direct costs only; ($60,000 per year for 2 to 3 years)
PDF Grants seek to attract and support promising scientists embarking on careers dedicated to breast cancer research who have no more than 3 years post-completion of their most recent clinical fellowship, 5 years post-completion of their most recent residency (for physicians), or 5 years post-completion of their most recent PhD. By providing funding to outstanding postdoctoral/postgraduate fellows under the guidance of a mentor, Komen seeks to ensure that a diverse pool of highly trained scientists will emerge as the next generation of leaders in the field of breast cancer research. PDF Grants provide support for 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.
Postdoctoral Fellowship Grants – Basic and Translational Research 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 PDF-Clinical Research RFA is available for clinical fellows proposing clinical research studies on breast cancer.
This grant mechanism is appropriate for clinical (i.e. MD) fellows proposing clinical, patient-oriented research projects that involve direct interactions with human subjects/patients. This includes studies such as therapeutic interventions or clinical trials.
A separate PDF-Basic and Translational Research RFA is available for biomedical breast cancer research projects that do not meet Komen's definition of clinical research.
Komen defines clinical research as hypothesis driven, patient-oriented research for which an investigator directly interacts with human subjects/patients, in conjunction with laboratory-based research, as appropriate. This includes studies such as therapeutic interventions or clinical trials.
