Stand Up To Cancer Dream Team Translational Cancer Research Grant funds a translational cancer research project that will address critical problems in patient care and deliver near-term patient benefit through investigation by a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional, collaborative Dream Team of expert investigators, according to the “Call for Ideas” issued to the scientific community.
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 that lead to patient involvement within 2-3 years from the beginning of the grant. Proposals for a Dream Team research project must present plans indicating how the work will be translated into the clinic. The ideas should be based on perceived opportunities for success as well as high-priority areas with a critical need for rapid progress beyond current medical care.
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.
Due Dates: Sep. 5, 2017 (LOI) | Jan. 16, 2018 (Full Proposals)
Amount & Project Period: $10 million total
