Funding Opportunity – Cancer Early Detection and Prevention Initiative

July 17, 2017

Applications are being solicited for the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center (VICC) Cancer Early Detection and Prevention Initiative. These funds are designed to provide money to support creating a nurturing environment for basic and clinical research investigations in the field of cancer early detection and prevention (CEDP). The immediate goal of the Initiative is to expand research, campus-wide, in this area and address critical issues in the early detection and prevention of leading cancers. The long-term goal is to build the scope of the cancer early detection and prevention research portfolio to a freestanding, peer-reviewed cancer center research program. The goal of these funds is to build preliminary data sets and projects for a larger collaborative grant application.

Funds are available to qualified faculty from Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Vanderbilt University. Multiple pilot projects will be awarded for projects beginning in October 2017. Project proposals must be one year in duration, with funding allocations ranging from approximately $25,000 to $50,000 per year.

Deadline for applications is Tuesday, August 15, 2017 by 5:00 p.m.
