The mission of the Hope Funds for Cancer Research is to encourage investigation of innovative cancer treatment and detection for the most difficult-to-treat and understudied cancers. Fellowships will be awarded to scientists who propose to work on highly innovative research projects that challenge the traditional paradigms or propose new paradigms of understanding the causes, mechanisms, progression, disease markers or risk factors of the most difficult-to-treat cancers, including pancreatic, lung, liver, sarcomas, esophageal, brain, bone, rare leukemias and lymphomas, MDS, gastric and ovarian cancers, and others where little progress has been made in the last 20 years.
Outstanding candidates are invited to submit applications for these Hope Funds for Cancer Research Postdoctoral Fellowships. The fellowships are open to scientists who have recently completed their doctorate degrees and to scientists who have completed no more than two years of postdoctoral work.
The first step in the application process is to submit an abstract of the proposed research using the Summary of Research Form and providing a brief description of the project. This form can be downloaded from our website: http://www.hope-funds.org/grants/eligibility-and-application/.
The completed form and project description should be submitted by email directly to email@example.com not later than 5:00PM EDT on 18 September, 2015.
An independent peer-review study session will review these abstracts and recommend a final group of candidates, who will be notified by December 2015. These candidates will be asked to submit a more detailed research proposal and some additional supporting application materials. Final selection and notification of grantees will be completed by April 2016.
