Request for Applications Developmental Project Award

Request for Applications Developmental Project Award

The Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center Specialized Program in Research Excellence (SPORE) in Skin Cancer seeks applications for Developmental Projects in Skin Cancer Translational Research.

Eligible candidates for the Developmental Research Project Award are those who are in their final year of clinical or postdoctoral fellowship or have a faculty appointment (MD, PhD, or MD/PhD required). A track record of interest and/or productivity in skin cancer research is required. Research may span the disciplines of basic biology, population studies, outcomes, or social science. However, all basic research supported by the SPORE must have a plan for translation into application or studies in humans, since the purpose of this program is to promote translational research in skin cancer. Applications will be judged on their scientific merit and/or the potential for contribution to the overall status of the DF/HCC Melanoma and Cutaneous Oncology Cancer Program/Skin Cancer SPORE.

Funded individuals will become members of the DF/HCC Skin Cancer Program and the DF/HCC Skin Cancer SPORE and would be expected to attend SPORE activities (meetings, retreats, research presentations). Young investigators, women and minority candidates are encouraged to apply.

Applications should consist of the following:

1. NIH Formatted Biosketch

2. A brief summary of research (not to exceed 5 pages excluding references) including an Abstract, Research Plan. Background and Relevance, Specific Aims, Preliminary Data, Experimental Methods, Translation Goals and anticipated time line.

3. Budget (up to $50,000 direct costs)

4. Brief Statement of Work

5. Statement of Intent (non-DFCI applicants only)

Application Submission Instructions: One PDF document including the above required documentation should be emailed to agionfriddo@partners.org by 5:00pm, November 19, 2012. For all inquiries, please contact Alex Gionfriddo by email (shown above) or by phone 617-582-0075.
