Basic Clinical Partnerships

Funding is available from The University of Arizona Cancer Center Support Grant for collaborative translational research pilot projects. Of particular interest are projects focused on the development of translational cancer therapies that lead to preliminary preclinical data. Priority will be given to those applications with a clear pathway to grant submissions to external sponsors, and to the development of an investigator-initiated clinical interventional treatment trial for cancer treatment based upon UACC science.

Two projects will be funded through this RFA. Budget requests may not exceed $100,000 in total direct costs. Acceptable budgets may be for one year or spread over 2 years maximum for $50,000 per year.

All details for opportunity can be found at UA Competition Space.

All applications must be submitted electronically at UA Competition Space by October 30, 2020, 5 p.m.
