American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grant

The University of Arizona Cancer Center has an annual pilot project funding opportunity through funds made available by the American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grant (ACS-IRG). Qualified faculty from the University of Arizona and its affiliates are encouraged to apply for cancer research funds made available through an American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grant (ACS-IRG), in all areas of cancer research. These include basic, clinical, population sciences, imaging, and bioengineering. IRG pilot project grants are intended to support independent, self-directed investigators early in their careers to help them start their research programs and to obtain preliminary data in support of more extensive proposals. The potential to obtain external funds is a score-driving criterion. Only applications that relate to cancer research will be accepted. However, cancer-related research will be interpreted using the broadest definition.

Applications are due on May 17, 2021 by 5 p.m. MST for the next cycle. Submission information and relevant documents can be found at the UA Competition Space.
