Detall de la convocatòria


Objectiu de la convocatòria
Postdoctoral Fellowship (PDF) Grants are intended to attract and support promising scientists and clinician/scientists who are embarking on careers dedicated to breast cancer research. By providing funding to outstanding postdoctoral/postgraduate fellows under the guidance of a mentor, Komen seeks to ensure that a diverse pool of highly trained scientists will emerge as the next generation of leaders in the field of breast cancer research. These leaders will play key roles in reducing breast cancer incidence and mortality within in the next decade, with the ultimate goal of ending breast cancer forever.
Característiques principals
PDF-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.
