Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), in partnership with the American Association for Cancer Research, is inviting LOIs for a new $10 million "Dream Team" of top scientific investigators searching for new strategies to prevent or treat cancer. Unlike other "Dream Team" grant opportunities offered by SU2C in recent years, the SU2C Dream Team Translational Cancer Research Grant program is open to any type of translational cancer research. The program will support a single translational cancer research project that addresses a critical problem in patient care and has the potential to deliver near-term patient benefit through investigation by a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional, expert team of investigators. The ideas may focus on particular organ sites, patient populations (such as pediatrics) or on innovative methods of treatment. Projects must be designed to accelerate the application of new preventive, diagnostic or therapeutic approaches to the clinic (i.e., lead to patient involvement within two to three years from the beginning of the grant). To maximize creativity, innovation, and collaboration, the Dream Team must include laboratory and clinical researchers, senior and/or young investigators, and senior scientists who have not worked together in the past. LOI must be submitted by September 5, 2017 12:00 p.m. ET using the proposalCENTRAL website at proposalcentral.altum.com. The Program Guidelines and Application Instructions (PDF) and Call for Ideas (PDF) document are available online.
Princeton University and Cisco will co-host UIDP 26, the semi-annual meeting of the
