Winship Invest$ Prostate Cancer Research Pilot Grant

The Winship prostate cancer pilot grant opportunity is designed to enhance the development of a robust prostate cancer research program at Winship.

Thanks to generous gifts from the Dunwoody Country Club Champions Golf Association and the Club’s John H. Kauffman Prostate Cancer Fundraiser, Winship Cancer Institute is pleased to announce a prostate cancer research pilot grant opportunity for Winship investigators.

Innovative proposals that address prostate cancer research including but not limited to basic or translational research, investigator initiated clinical trials (related IRB submission must be either in review or approved), health disparities, imaging, survivorship or quality of life will be considered for funding.

The Winship prostate cancer pilot grant program is designed to enhance the development of a robust prostate cancer research program at Winship. It is expected that the submitted proposal will lead to the submission of extramural grant proposals seeking peer-reviewed funding from the National Institutes of Health, American Cancer Society, Veteran's Administration, Department of Defense, or other Federal/Foundation funding.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • PIs should be active Emory faculty at the rank of senior associate, instructor, assistant professor, associate professor or professor.
  • The research proposal should include at least one investigator who is a Winship member in good standing (the Winship member can be a PI, co-investigator or collaborator)

Proposals for up to $30,000/year for a term of one year will be considered. Funding will be distributed (minus a 10% assessment) in two installments: one-half of the total award prior to the award start date, and the remainder subsequent to presentation of the project at the monthly Prostate Cancer Seminar Series, and submission of a progress report before the mid-term of the project period. A final report is due at the conclusion of the award (to be completed by one year) and should address whether the original aims of the pilot project have been met and offer the likelihood of project expansion into further prostate cancer research.
