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 Medical Research Foundation's (MRF's) 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. Multiple projects will be funded through this mechanism. Projects in basic, translational, clinical, population based science, and drug development will be considered.

The unique collaborative relationship with these MRF's 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.

Investigators who are interested in applying for Helis funds should contact Bert O'Malley, C. Kent Osborne, David Poplack, or Tony Means with scientific questions. There are some unique administrative aspects to this research mechanism so please contact Ted Yank or Shari Yepez for administrative and budgetary guidance.
