American Association for Cancer Research Clinical and Translational Cancer Research Fellowships
The AACR Clinical and Translational Cancer Research Fellowships represent a joint effort to encourage and support postdoctoral or clinical research fellows to conduct clinical and/or translational cancer research. Proposed research projects may be in any area of clinical and/or translational cancer research.
The fellowships provide one-year grants of $55,000 to support the salary and benefits of the Fellow while working on a mentored clinical and/or translational cancer research project. A partial amount of funds may be designated for non-personnel expenses, such as research/laboratory supplies, equipment, travel to the AACR Annual Meeting 2016, publication charges for manuscripts that pertain directly to the funded project, and other research expenses.
It is anticipated that two fellowships will be funded.
There are no citizenship or geographic requirements. However, by submitting an application for this grant, an applicant applying from an institution located in a country in which he/she is not a citizen or a permanent resident assures that the visa status will provide sufficient time to complete the project and grant term at the institution from which he/she applied.
