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 2019 cycle has closed.
