Objectiu de la convocatòria
The Technology Impact Award provides seed funding to address the gap between technology development and clinical application of cancer immunotherapies. These grants aim to encourage collaboration between technology developers and clinical cancer immunologists.
Característiques principals
The award focuses on areas where technological innovation stands to benefit the field and cancer patients most, and that will ultimately lead to effective next generation cancer immunotherapies. These technologies may include but are not limited to:
  • New bioinformatics methods or technologies that speed collection and analysis of large sets of patient-derived biological data
  • Computer simulations for modeling biological systems and responses to immunotherapy
  • Tools and methods that improve profiling of tumors to inform therapeutic strategies
  • Real-time visualizations of molecular and cellular activity to improve tracking of responses to immunotherapy
  • In vitro tissue culture systems that recapitulate the interactions between primary tumor cells and the immune system

    Informació addicional
    The process for applying for a CLIP Grant consists of two parts:
  • Letter of Intent: Deadline 15 November 2021
  • Invited Application: Deadline 15 March 2022
  • Requisits
  • Applicants must hold a faculty appointment as a tenure-track assistant professor (or higher rank) at the time of award activation.
  • The grant will be awarded to a scientist who describes an extraordinarily novel, yet practical research plan that is creative and technically sophisticated.
  • Joint submissions from collaborators will also be considered. (The collaborators will share the award.) Each collaborator must meet the eligibility criteria.
  • Selected projects that meet their 12 and 24 month milestones may be eligible for follow-on funding that will enable the established proof-of-concept technology to be developed into a methodology that improves cancer immunotherapy research worldwide
  • Dotació
