Pilot Projects / Funding Opportunities
Sol Goldman Pancreatic Cancer Research Center 2015
Deadline: 9/4/2015 5:00 PM - 4 Day(s) Left
The Sol Goldman Pancreatic Cancer Research Center at Johns Hopkins is pleased to announce that funding is available for a limited number of novel developmental research programs (pilot projects) in the study of adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. This program funds important new pilot projects with promising translational potential that do not have sufficient data for an independently funded NIH grant. Projects of high priority should focus on new research directions, explore innovative ideas, test unconventional, but potentially important, new hypotheses, or ascertain the feasibility of new research approaches. Applications are due Friday, September 4, 2015 at 5:00 p.m.

Pilot Projects in GI Cancer-related Research
Deadline: 9/11/2015 (Prior to Midnight) - 11 Day(s) Left
A new Pilot Project Program is now available to support projects in GI cancer-related research. A total of $140,000 will be available, sufficient for funding two to three grants at $ 45 - $70,000 per annum for one to two years for each successful applicant. Priority will be given to translational research projects, though basic research that has obvious applications in the near-term will also be considered. Novelty and applicability are particularly important. Funds for this new pilot project program are being provided by the GI SPORE grants. Please note that that there will be no other solicitations for pilot projects for the GI Grant. Grants must be submitted electronically through a simple web form, available at: http://oncweb1-vm.onc.jhmi.edu/pilotprojects/ All entries must be completed by September 11, 2015 at 5:00 PM. Selections of grants for funding will be made shortly thereafter. The funding period will extend from October 1, 2015 – August 31, 2016.

Deadline: 9/11/2015 (Prior to Midnight) - 11 Day(s) Left
Applications are being accepted for the Career Development Program of the Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) in GI Cancer. This Program is funded by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health and is directed at translational research in gastrointestinal cancer. The SPORE includes funds for career development of faculty members who are or will be specifically involved in translational research in gastrointestinal cancer, including costs for supplies, salary, and fringe. Candidates eligible for consideration include faculty members at any level in the University who wish to direct their efforts into translational research in gastrointestinal cancer. The start date will be the start of the SPORE budget year on October 1, 2015 1. The amount is set by the SPORE budget and the number of awardees, but can be expected to be in the range of $30,000 - $50,000 annually. Candidates will be selected by the Career Development Committee with approval by the SPORE Steering Committee within a month of the application due date. Application criteria: 1. Potential for independent investigation 2. Feasibility and quality of the proposed area of research 3. Translational importance of the proposed research 4. Experience of the mentor 5. Interactions with other SPORE investigators 6. Time commitment to research Application requirements: 1. Biographical sketch of the applicant on the NIH form. 2. One-page description of their career goals and interests in translational research in gastrointestinal cancer including past experience. 3. NIH biographical sketch and other support pages of a proposed mentor in GI cancer, preferably a SPORE investigator. Applications are due by September 11, 2015. Please use the Pilot Projects Registration Center, which can be accessed at http://pilotsprojects.onc.jhmi.edu to submit applications.

Johns Hopkins-Allegheny Health Network Cancer Research Fund
Deadline: 11/16/2015 (Prior to Midnight) - 77 Day(s) Left
The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine announces the second annual request for applications (RFA) for the Hopkins-Allegheny Health Network (AHN) Cancer Research Fund. Hopkins-AHN Awards will fund cancer research projects at the level of $100,000 direct costs per year, with an award term of two years. The expectation is that Hopkins-AHN Awards will spark synergistic interactions among investigators and catalyze scientific achievements of the highest quality and impact. Applications are welcomed from across the spectrum of fundamental, translational, clinical, and epidemiologic research. Applications are similarly free to focus on specific organ sites or on issues that span multiple cancer types. Applications will be evaluated by reviewers from both the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center (SKCCC) and the Allegheny Health Network Cancer Institute (AHN CI) and will be based on their potential to influence our scientific understanding of cancer and our clinical, operational, and financial management of the disease.
