Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center Pilot Projects

The Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center is seeking proposals for six up to $50,000 one-year pilot projects to be awarded before Feb. 17, 2017. Our focus this year will be to support early phase translational research projects, defined as preclinical research with potential immediate relevance for future application to patients. Ideally, these projects would be arising from activities of the disease-oriented work groups, in collaboration with one of the formal DLDCCC research programs. Preference will be given to projects which involve collaborations between basic researchers working with clinicians, who have identified clinical problems requiring laboratory investigation.

Applications should be submitted by 5 p.m., Monday, Jan. 23, 2017. 

All cancer center members who have a faculty appointment are eligible to apply. 
Indirect costs are not allowed and applications do no need to be submitted via BRAIN.
