Detall de la convocatòria


Objectiu de la convocatòria
Funding for innovative projects on new treatment modalities such as targeted therapies and immune therapies.
Característiques principals
The 2021 LCRF-AstraZeneca grant program aims to fund innovative projects to:
  • Understand primary and acquired resistance to osimertinib and novel combinations targeting concurrent driver mutations
  • Develop more effective approaches to address disease progression in patients treated with durvalumab
  • Discover novel biomarkers for predicting response to osimertinib or durvalumab and to identify patients who are at higher risk of recurrence (translational research preferred)
  • Identify predictive biomarkers, understand the underlying biology and develop novel interventions for immune mediated adverse events, such as pneumonitis, in patients receiving durvalumab
    Proposals which specifically focus on either osimertinib or durvalumab will be strongly favored.
