BCAN is pleased to announce the 2019 Bladder Cancer Research Innovation Award to support the work of one investigator with an exceptionally novel and creative project with great potential to produce breakthroughs in our understanding of the management of bladder cancer. One proposal will be funded for $300,000 over two years ($150,000 per year).
The proposed research may be basic, translational, clinical or epidemiological and must have direct applicability and relevance to bladder cancer. The award is available to full time, independent investigators who are affiliated with a non-profit academic, medical or research institution within the United States or Canada. Eligible recipients include investigators who have experience in other areas of cancer or biomedical/health science research with promising ideas and approaches that can be applied to bladder cancer research. Projects that are high-risk and high-reward, as opposed to incremental in nature, are encouraged.
Essential elements of this award mechanism include the following: does the project address (i) an important problem and/or critical barrier to progress in the field of bladder cancer research? (ii) an area in which there is a significant gap in current knowledge?
The award is available to full time, independent investigators who are affiliated with a non-profit academic, medical or research institution within the United States or Canada. Candidates not currently performing bladder cancer research are encouraged to apply. Proposals that involve a multidisciplinary approach and/or multi-institutional collaboration are encouraged. Interested applicants must submit a Letter of Intent by Wednesday January 16, 2019 at 5:00 PM EST.
