Deadline Extended for 2012 CFCF-AACR Grants for Carcinoid Tumor and Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Research

Thursday, June 14, 2012 - 15:43

Please note the extended deadline for the 2012 CFCF-AACR Awards for Carcinoid Tumor and Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Research. Through these grants, CFCF and the AACR are working together to increase the understanding of neuroendocrine tumor biology, elucidate the mechanisms of currently available therapies, and identify new treatment targets for carcinoid and pancreatic neuroendocrine cancers. 

We expect to award a grant of $250,000, paid over a two year period.  We are seeking investigators pursuing innovative ideas and approaches that have a direct application and relevance to carcinoid cancer or pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer. Applications are invited from researchers currently in the field, as well as from investigators with experience in other areas of cancer research. Proposed research may be basic, translational, clinical or epidemiological in nature. 

For further details regarding this grant opportunity, review the Program Guidelines. The deadline for applications has been extended to July 9th, 2012.  Click here to apply.
