Collaborative Research Projects

The Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center is soliciting proposals to conduct collaborative research with the Diana Helis Henry and the Adrienne Helis Malvin Medical Research Foundations. These projects will involve BCM and MRF funded investigators and all research will be conducted at BCM. Projects will be funded for two to three years at a rate of approximately $300,000 in total cost per year. This is inclusive of rent paid to BCM for identified laboratory space and 15 percent indirect costs. Up to six projects could be funded through both these mechanism. Projects in basic, translational, clinical or population based science will be considered.

The unique collaborative relationship with these medical research foundations allows the DLDCC to target projects in areas of strategic scientific interest for the development of the Cancer Center consistent with the Strategic Plan of the center. Specifically this year the center leadership is soliciting projects in four broad areas:

  • Prevention and Population Science
  • Lung Cancer
  • Systems Chemical Biology Screening
  • Translational and Functional Genomics

There are some unique administrative aspects to this research mechanism. Contact Ted Yank or Shari Yepez for administrative and budgetary guidance.

Deadline for final project submission is Dec. 31, 2010. Projects will be selected in January and funding will begin on April 1, 2011.
