Translation Acceleration Grant

Translation Acceleration Grants


Prostate Cancer Canada (PCC) has invited applications for investigator-initiated Translation Acceleration Grants (TAG) that address a significant issue in the management of prostate cancer, with a high potential of preventing disease progression and/or improving quality of life in the short term.
 
Starting in 2014, each competition has addressed a significant issue in the management of prostate cancer. The intent of the program is not to support new discovery. Rather the grants should leverage existing knowledge and capabilities to accelerate impact without overlapping currently funded Prostate Cancer Canada and Movember Foundation initiatives.

TAG1: Aggressive vs. indolent prostate cancer
TAG2: Novel therapeutics for aggressive disease
True Nth Survivorship Grants (TAG3)
TAG4 and TAG5: Innovative approaches to manage prostate cancer
TAG6: Targeted Radionuclide Therapy


These opportunities were awarded by Prostate Cancer Canada and proudly funded in part by the Movember Foundation.
