LOIs Due for UC Cancer Research Coordinating Committee Seed Grants
Deadline: January 25, 2018 12:00 PM

This deadline has passed and is no longer active

The UC Cancer Research Coordinating Committee (CRCC) is a systemwide, faculty-directed cancer research program that provides competitive intramural research awards for topics in any discipline that address any aspect of cancer, including its origins, detection, prevention and cure. Funding for this opportunity is provided through 33 bequests to UC for cancer research, as well as donations made through the California Cancer Research Voluntary Tax Contribution Fund. CRCC funds support meritorious research spanning all areas from basic research to applied clinical and community-based research in any field relevant to cancer. Proposals must be directly relevant to cancer. Cancer relevance should be articulated in relation to the substance of the scholarship, and if appropriate to the project, may include the likely impact of the research on communities disproportionately at risk or afflicted by cancer, or explore avenues for expanding culturally sensitive, community-based education to raise awareness about the causes and prevention of cancer.

The CRCC provides one-year seed grants to faculty on the 10 UC campuses, with the expectation that the most promising endeavors will become competitive for larger, long-term grants from other funding sources. Currently, the CRCC awards grants to UC Academic Senate faculty in the following categories:

  • New faculty to initiate cancer research projects;
  • Established investigators in other areas of research to initiate cancer research projects;
  • Established cancer investigators to initiate cancer studies in new areas.

Awards are made in two categories: New Assistant Professor (NAP) and Regular (REG), as described below. The maximum award amount for the 2019 award year will be $75,000. The award term is January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019. General program information regarding the CRCC may be found on our website: http://ucop.edu/research-initiatives/programs/crcc/
