AACR invites application for carcinoid and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor research grant

The American Association for Cancer Research is pleased to announce new grant-giving partnerships with the Caring for Carcinoid Foundation (CFCF) and the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Fund for the Arts and Sciences.

"The AACR is thrilled to partner with The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation and the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Fund for the Arts and Sciences," said Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.), CEO of the American Association for Cancer Research. "We share the vision of these two incredible organizations to move the science forward to combat carcinoid tumors."

Caring for Carcinoid Foundation-AACR Grants for Carcinoid Tumor and Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Research: These two-year grants of $250,000 ($125,000 per year) are open to independent junior and senior investigators to develop and study new ideas and innovative approaches that have direct application and relevance to carcinoid tumors or pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors.

Through this joint effort, CFCF and AACR hope to increase the understanding of neuroendocrine tumor biology, elucidate the mechanisms of currently available therapies, and identify new treatment targets for carcinoid and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. Proposed research may be in any discipline of basic, translational, clinical or epidemiological cancer research. Applications will be accepted from researchers currently in the field and those with application experience in other areas of cancer research. Two grants will be awarded. For more information on eligibility criteria, the nomination process and other details, please visit http://www.aacr.org/page21782.aspx.

Raymond and Beverly Sackler AACR Fellowships for Ileal Carcinoid Tumor Research: These two-year grants of $100,000 ($50,000 per year) are open to postdoctoral and clinical research fellows.

Applications are invited from researchers currently in the field, as well as from investigators with experience in other areas of cancer research. Proposed research may be basic, translational, clinical or epidemiological in nature and must have direct application and relevance to ileal carcinoid tumors. Two grants will be awarded. For more information, please visit http://www.aacr.org/page21787.aspx.

The application deadline for both grant programs is September 15, 2010.
