Research Program Funding Opportunities
H Foundation Incentive and Bridge Award Applications
Through the generous support of the H Foundation,the Basic Sciences Research Division of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University has been able to fund research grant applications to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) through two funding mechanisms: Incentive and Bridge Awards.
Lea Charitable Trust Equipment Grants
Through the generous support of the Lea Charitable Trust, the Basic Sciences Research Division of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University has available a pool of funds to support small equipment purchases for collaborative cancer-related research projects or for use by multiple cancer research investigators.
Liz and Eric Lefkofsky Innovation Research Awards
As a result of a very generous donation from Liz and Eric Lefkofsky, Lurie Cancer Center is soliciting proposals from beginning investigators for new, innovative, cancer-relevant pilot studies that can serve as foundations for larger, nationally funded studies. Proposals for basic, translational, or clinical pilot studies will be considered. Applicants must be within six years of their first faculty appointment.
Prostate SPORE Developmental Research Program
The Developmental Research (pilot) Program supports innovative research initiatives by providing seed money through the funding of pilot projects.
Physical Sciences-Oncology Center Pilot Project
As part of its charter, the Northwestern University Physical Science-Oncology Center (NU-PSOC) offers pilot project funding for up to two projects each year to researchers for innovative projects that are closely aligned with the central research mission of the Center.
Training and Travel
Doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows may apply for several available travel grant programs to help defray the cost of travel and registration fees to a scientific meeting where the awardees will present their research.
Prostate SPORE Career Development Program
The Career Development Program (CDP) is intended to recruit and train junior faculty investigators at Northwestern University and the University of Chicago for careers in prostate cancer translational research through strong mentoring and career guidance.
Summer Research Programs for Students
Training the next generation of clinicians and scientists is at the foundation of the Lurie Cancer Center's mission. Our summer research programs give students the opportunity to learn and become active participants in cancer research.
Northwestern University Fellowship Programs
The Lurie Cancer Center is dedicated to the process of discovery, advancing medical knowledge, and providing compassionate, state-of-the-art cancer care. Fellowship programs provide comprehensive clinical training and research experiences designed to develop tomorrow's leaders and achieve these goals.
Northwestern University Training Programs
The Lurie Cancer Center offers NIH-funded training programs for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows (MD and PhD), clinicians, and under-represented students. Trainees may pursue basic, translational, or clinical research under the guidance of established investigators.
Master of Biotechnology Program
The Master of Biotechnology Program is administered by the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering integrates biology and engineering and provides the opportunity for extensive hands-on research in Northwestern University faculty laboratories.
