Targeted RFA 2019

Movember Translation Acceleration Grant to improve patient outcomes and treatment planning with advanced imaging

With this funding opportunity announcement, Prostate Cancer Canada (PCC) invites members of the prostate cancer research community to collaboratively participate in a multi-stage process to submit one (1) application for an investigator-initiated Translational Acceleration Grant (TAG).
New imaging modalities are increasing our ability to detect low volume prostate cancer metastases. The project funded by this mechanism will explore how advanced imaging such as PET, CT and mpMRI, together with appropriate treatment for men with advanced prostate cancer can lead to better outcomes.
A multidisciplinary approach is required and the Movember TAG application will consist of independent investigators based in multiple institutions. PCC will only consider a project that is focused completely on prostate cancer.

This request for applications (RFA) is a multi-step process:
  • Individuals submit an Expression of Interest to participate in developing a proposal. Selected individuals will be brought together with the intention of collaborating.
  • As a team, submit an application that will have the greatest potential to demonstrate the value of incorporating advanced imaging modalities into prostate cancer management in Canada and abroad by designing and carrying out a prospective clinical trial that evaluates patient outcomes following image-guided treatment planning.
This opportunity is awarded by Prostate Cancer Canada and proudly funded by the Movember Foundation.

Award amount: up to $3M over 3 years
