Avon Foundation 2014 RFP
The Avon Foundation for Women continues its search for new preventive strategies to address the growing number of breast cancer cases around the globe. To develop new strategies to prevent breast cancer, we need to understand the causes of breast cancer in people; changes in breast cells that give rise to cancer, markers for disease, and how breast cancer progresses.
The 2014 Avon Foundation Research Program seeks proposals in these areas to advance understanding of causes of breast cancer and prevention. Proposals may request up to $150,000 total costs per year for up to 2 years in duration. Thus, the total award budget can be up to $300,000.For 2014, there is one application cycle and there is a 2-stage process:
Stage 1: Letter of Intent (LOI)
Open to all research organizations: universities, nonprofit organizations, or in rare instances, for-profit organizations.
Stage 2: Full Proposal
By invitation only based on the review of your LOI submission.

Winship CFAR03: HIV/AIDS and Cancer
The Center for AIDS Research at Emory University (CFAR) and the Winship Cancer Institute (Winship) are collaborating on a funding mechanism designed to encourage Winship faculty to expand their Cancer-related research into the field of HIV/AIDS. Applications and awards will be administered through the CFAR03 mechanism of the CFAR Developmental Core.
The CFAR03 mechanism is intended to help move researchers toward independent investigator status in HIV/AIDS research at the National Institute of Cancer (NCI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) by funding projects whose findings will strengthen the competitiveness of NCI applications.
The CFAR03 mechanism is modeled on the NIH R03 program and provides support for research projects that can be accomplished in a short period of time (1 year) with limited resources ($40K in direct costs).
