The Canadian Cancer Society is pleased to announce that the online applications for the Interventions to Prevent Cancer Grant Competition, the Research Grants Competition, and the Junior investigator Grant Panel Travel Award are now available via the Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute (CCSRI) website at www.cancer.ca/research.
Interventions to Prevent Cancer Grant Competition (Letter of Intent)
Applications are invited for social science, health policy, population health, health promotion and health services research aimed at identifying effective interventions that address behaviours or exposures that affect cancer risk and are likely to have an evaluable cancer prevention impact. Interventions to prevent cancer are defined as research to modify determinants of, and/or changes to, behaviours or exposures that affect cancer risk.
Deadline: October 8, 2010
Research Grants Competition
Grants for research will be awarded to projects deemed worthy of support, provided that the basic equipment and research facilities are available in the institution concerned and that it will provide the necessary administrative services. Such awards will be granted for the purchase and maintenance of animals, expendable supplies, minor items of equipment, payment of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and technical and professional assistants, open access publication costs, research travel and permanent equipment.
Deadline: October 15, 2010
Changes for this competition:
* Only one INITIAL or RE-APPLICATION submission from each
Principal Investigator/Co-Principal Investigator will be accepted.
Renewals are not affected by this limit.
* There must not be substantive overlap (more than 75%) with any
pending application to any agency as of October 15, 2010. This pertains
to initial, re-applications or renewal applications. Duplicate
applications will not be accepted.
* Grants will be awarded for a maximum term of 3 years.
Junior investigator grant panel travel award
This Canadian Cancer Society special initiative allows junior investigators in cancer research to gain first-hand knowledge and understanding of the peer-review process. Selected junior investigators from across Canada will be reimbursed up to $1,000 for travel costs to Toronto for two days to observe a particular session of grant reviews.
Eligible applicants must be investigators in cancer research within the first year of their academic appointment date/offer of employment, who have not yet been awarded a grant seeking direct support for research from a Canadian granting agency. More information, including an online nomination form, is available from the CCSRI website at www.cancer.ca/research.
