Translation Acceleration Grant

Movember Translation Acceleration Grant

Prostate Cancer Canada (PCC) invites 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. The intent of this program is not to support new discovery. Rather proposals should leverage existing knowledge and capabilities to accelerate impact without overlapping currently funded Prostate Cancer Canada and Movember initiatives.
 
While the area of prostate cancer covered by the proposal is open, the emphasis of this funding opportunity is to develop an intervention that can be studied in a patient or population study within a 5-year timeframe. It is expected that a multidisciplinary and multi-institutional approach will be required and each application may consist of independent investigators based in multiple institutions with a lead Principal Investigator. This competition is open to projects studying any stage of the prostate cancer journey, but PCC will only consider projects that are completely focused on prostate cancer.


Award amount: up to $1.5M over 3 years

Key dates:
Registration Deadline: January 27, 2016
Full Application Deadline: February 17, 2016
