INTERNAL FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR NOVEMBER 7, 2019
|Funding Sponsor||Program Title||Amount of Award||Due Date||Notification Date|
|Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center||Hopkins-Allegheny Health Network (AHN) Cancer Research Fund||$200,000||November 20, 2019||February 2020|
|The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine announces the sixth annual request for applications (RFA) for the Hopkins-Allegheny Health Network (AHN) Cancer Research Fund. Hopkins-AHN Awards will fund cancer research projects at the level of $100,000 direct costs per year, with an award term of two years. The expectation is that Hopkins-AHN Awards will spark synergistic interactions among investigators and catalyze scientific achievements of the highest quality and impact. Applications are welcomed from across the spectrum of fundamental, translational, clinical, and epidemiologic research. Applications are similarly free to focus on specific organ sites or on issues that span multiple cancer types. Applications will be evaluated by reviewers from both the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center (SKCCC) and the Allegheny Health Network Cancer Institute (AHN CI) and will be based on their potential to influence our scientific understanding of cancer and our clinical, operational, and financial management of the disease.
Eligibility: Each proposal must include a SKCCC Member or AHN researcher as principal investigator (PI) or co-principal investigator (Co-PI). A SKCCC Member or AHN researcher may only participate in one application as PI or Co-PI. The proposal cannot be duplicative with other funding, at the time of the award. Overlap will be assessed by SKCCC staff on a Just-In-Time model. Applications including both SKCCC and AHN researchers will be favorably received, as will applications that have the potential to bring new approaches and expertise to bear on important problems in cancer research.
|Neurofibromatosis Therapeutic Acceleration Program at Johns Hopkins||Francis S. Collins Scholars Program in Neurofibromatosis Clinical and Translational Research||Salary and training
|November 22, 2019||January 8, 2020|
|The Francis S. Collins Scholars Program in Neurofibromatosis Clinical and Translational Research is a key initiative of the Neurofibromatosis Therapeutic Acceleration Program (NTAP) at Johns Hopkins. NTAP (www.n-tap.org) is dedicated to the advancement of research that will improve outcomes for patients with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). A major need to accomplish this mission is the training and support of clinician scientists who are dedicated to NF1. NTAP launched the Francis S. Collins Scholars Program in Neurofibromatosis Clinical and Translational Research to address this need.
Eligibility: Applicants must hold a health-professional degree that permits patient care with a commitment to including patient care in their career plan; commit a minimum of 75% and up to 100% of professional effort to the program for a two to three years; be in the last stages of post-doctoral training or a junior faculty member within seven years of the first faculty appointment; have a commitment to patient focused research in the field of neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1); demonstrate prior research commitment and accomplishments; have a mentorship team that includes research, clinical, and career mentorship (these roles can be filled by up to four people) with expressed commitment to the candidate’s training, expertise in the research skill set required for the work proposed in the application, and in the clinical management of NF1; and have the appropriate access to resources to complete the clinical and research work proposed in the application.
|Hopkins-WellSpan Cancer Health Services Research Fund||$100,000||November 27, 2019||February 2020|
|The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine announces the request for applications (RFA) for the Hopkins-WellSpan Cancer Health Services Research Fund. Hopkins-WellSpan awards will fund cancer health services research projects at the level of $100,000 direct costs per year, with an award term of one year. The expectation is that Hopkins-WellSpan awards will further the field of health services research by asking questions relevant to cancer and those patients who are at risk for, who have, or who are survivors of the disease. Possible categories of study should be related to health care delivery, risk-factor based, quality improvement and patient safety, patient engagement, or patient report outcomes. Applications are free to focus on specific organ sites or on issues that span multiple cancer types.
Eligibility: Each proposal must include an investigator from Johns Hopkins University, Johns Hopkins Health System, or WellSpan Health who has a research interest in cancer. Applications including both Johns Hopkins and WellSpan researchers will be favorably received, as will applications that have the potential to deliver a sustainable product in the field of cancer related health services research by leveraging EPIC. Overlap among proposals will be assessed on a Just-In-Time model for possible synergies among researchers and resources.
