Winship Invest$ Pilot Grant Program
Winship Invest$, a peer-reviewed program designed to fund novel, innovative cancer research projects at Winship. Winship Invest$ is supported by philanthropic contributions as well as developmental funds from Winship's Cancer Center Support Grant (P30CA138292) awarded by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health.
Winship Invest$ has two funding cycles every year. The most recent cycle focused on the growth and development of the Winship's four research programs, with specific calls designed to address programmatic priorities.
Winship Invest$ Prostate Cancer Research Pilot Grant
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 Emory faculty. 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.
The application process for the 2018 cycle is currently open.
ACS Institutional Research Grant Awards
The American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grants (ACS-IRG) are designed to support the development of beginning investigators conducting cancer research by providing pilot funds to obtain preliminary results that will enable them to compete successfully for national research grants. The program is intended to support independent, self-directed, investigators early in their careers for whom the institution has committed research facilities, resources or space.
A request for applications is typically announced in the summer of each year for awarding in January.
