Funding for Prostate Cancer Research
Funding is available to support multidisciplinary research in prostate cancer through the Patrick C. Walsh Prostate Cancer Research Fund, the SPORE Development Research Program (DRP), and the SPORE Career Enhancement Program (CEP). Awards are for one year and a maximum of $100,000, with an exception for the SPORE CEP. The CEP awards will be given as 2-year awards at $50,000 per year. Investigators will be allowed to request a 1-year no cost extension at the end of the award period with proper scientific justification.
Funding is open to all JHU affiliated faculty. Partnership with a Brady Urological Institute faculty member is highly encouraged, but not required. An emphasis will be placed on funding research with a high priority given to project innovation as well as collaboration with basic science, data science, and engineering faculty.
Funds are to be used for supporting the proposed research application, however they should not be used to support PI salary. Awardees will be notified in mid to late August (2018). The award period will be from September 1, 2018 through August 31, 2019.
DEADLINE: Monday, July 16, 2018 by 5:00PM (EST)
