Detall de la convocatòria


Objectiu de la convocatòria
Career Catalyst (CCR) Grants are intended to foster promising breast cancer researchers who are in the early stages of their faculty careers by providing support for up to three years of “protected time” for research career development under the guidance of a Mentor Committee. It is expected that awardees will launch independent research careers and successfully compete for subsequent research project funding in breast cancer following the successful completion of a CCR Grant, thereby playing key roles in reducing breast cancer incidence and mortality within the next decade, with the ultimate goal of ending breast cancer forever.
Característiques principals
CCR-Basic/Translational Research Grants provide support for hypothesis-driven research projects that are laboratory- or field-based and do not meet Komen’s definition of clinical research. Studies focusing on quality of life or survivorship issues are not appropriate for this research focus area. A project involving clinical trial samples for a study in conjunction with a clinician that does not involve the Applicant having direct patient interaction would also be appropriate for the Basic/Translational Focus area.
