    Steven Goldman Memorial Pancreatic Cancer Research Funding Opportunity

    Please review the documents below for deadline information and submission instructions. Invited applications are due June 1, 2020. The timeline for grant submissions will be subject to change based on COVID-19 mandates, as needed.

    The purpose of this funding opportunity is to encourage research in the any of the following areas; clinical/ translational research in adult pancreatic cancer, molecular genetics of cancer, tumor immunology, growth promoting factors of cancer, tumor virology that appears to have relevance to human cancers and other areas such as population science. This pilot grant will offer one (1) grant of  $60,000 and will be awarded for the period of one (1) year. All full-time basic scientist affiliated with the University of Cincinnati are eligible to apply. Projects should have a strong scientific basis for development into peer-reviewed extramural support.

    The goals of the Steven Goldman Memorial Pancreatic Cancer Research Grant are to encourage:

    • Basic research in the area of cancer;
    • Projects seeking to determine the cause of cancer;
    • Projects that study the mechanisms by which cells undergo malignant transformation;
    • Study of the failure of the host to stop the spread and progression of the cancer.

    Congratulations to our 2019 Recipients:

    • Vladimir Bogdanov, PhD

    Brandon C. Gromada Head & Neck Cancer Research Pilot Funding Opportunity

    Please review the documents below for deadline information and submission instructions. Invited applications are due June 1, 2020. The timeline for grant submissions will be subject to change based on COVID-19 mandates, as needed.

    The Brandon C. Gromada Head & Neck Cancer Research Pilot Funding Opportunity will support an innovative and novel pilot research project in basic, translational, clinical and population-based research in head & neck cancer.  It serves to facilitate research in head & neck cancer through interaction and collaboration of investigators and also to encourage the entry of new investigators into the field of head & neck cancer research. All types of basic or clinical research involving head and neck cancers will be considered. Priority will be given to those projects with the potential to lead to new clinical trials or to extramural funding, particularly those investigating “poorly differentiated” squamous cell carcinomas (SCC).

    The goals of the Brandon C. Gromada Head & Neck Cancer Research Pilot Funding Opportunity are to:

    • Increase collaborative interaction to foster innovative head & neck cancer research
    • Facilitate novel approaches in head & neck cancer research
    • Encourage entry of new investigators into head & neck cancer research
    • Facilitate the translation of laboratory findings into clinical interventions for head & neck cancer patients
    • Possess a strong scientific basis for potential development into peer-reviewed extramural funding

    The Brandon C. Gromada Head & Neck Cancer Research Pilot Funding Opportunity will offer one grant up to $25,000.  The grant will be awarded for a period of one (1) year with the possibility of renewal contingent upon adequate progress and availability of funds. All UC faculty and medical professionals are eligible to apply for funding. Clinical and postdoctoral research fellows, instructors and research associates are eligible to apply as co-investigators with their UC faculty adviser or mentor as the principal investigator (PI).

    Congratulations to our 2019 Recipients:

    • Trisha Wise-Draper, MD, PhD

    UC Cancer Center Survivorship Program Pilot Funding Opportunity

    Applications are closed for this grant. Congratulations to our 2020 grant recipients:

    • Stefanie Benoit, MD, MPH, MA
    • Pramod Reddy, MD
    • Thomas Ryan, MD, PhD

    The Cancer Survivorship Program will offer two, two-year pilot grants of $50,000 each to facilitate research in adult and pediatric cancer survivorship. All UC, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and Cincinnati Veterans Affairs (VA) Hospital Medical Center researchers with at least a 50 percent faculty appointment are eligible to apply for funding as the principal investigator (PI).Clinical and postdoctoral research fellows, instructors and research associates are also eligible to apply as the PI but will require their faculty adviser designated as the mentor. Investigators from other institutions may participate as co-investigators, and in such instances, the UC, Cincinnati Children's or VA faculty member should be the PI.

    The research focus can span the observational, clinical/transnational research continuum including health services and health policy research. The application must address the assessment, prevention, management and/or intervention of issues that occur following the completion of active treatment of cancer (surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiation). Topics may include risk assessment, early detection, prevention and management of treatment related effects, prognostic biomarkers, epidemiologic studies, delivery of survivorship care (care plans, models of delivery), health disparities relevant to survivorship, quality of life, organizational integration of survivorship care, and patient or health care provider education.
