Career Development Award – Scholar Option – W81XWH-22-PRCRP-CDA-SO – up to USD$800,000 over 4 years – supports the addition of new ECRs to the unique, interactive virtual cancer centre focused on fostering the next generation of cancer researchers – must address at least one of the Topic Area, one of the Military Health Focus Areas – preliminary data not required – clinical trials not allowed
Topic areas: bladder cancer; blood cancers; brain cancer; colorectal cancer; endometrial cancer; esophageal cancer; germ cell cancers; head and neck cancer; liver cancer; lymphoma; mesothelioma; metastatic cancers; myeloma; neuroblastoma; pediatric, adolescent and young adult cancers; pediatric brain tumors; stomach cancer; sarcoma; thyroid cancer; Von Hippel-Landau syndrome malignancies (excluding cancers of the kidney and pancreas)
Military Health Focus Areas
- Environmental exposure risk factors associated with cancer (relevant to activities specific to the military such as deployments that may lead to exposures to potential carcinogens eg ionizing radiation, chemicals, infectious agents, etc)
- Gaps in cancer research that may affect mission readiness (gaps in prevention, early detection/diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, quality of life, survivorship)
- Behavioural Science – Develop strategies to: Address survivorship issues including quality of life, overall mental health, psychological impact of recurrence, and/or survivor permanent disability; Reduce short- and long-term treatment effects, including neurocognitive deficits.
- Disparity – Improve prevention strategies, diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes for patients in underserved or under-recognized population; Develop strategies to improve accessibility to care and to address survivorship.
