JUNIOR INVESTIGATOR ACS SEED GRANTS
The Moores Cancer Center is now accepting applications from junior investigators for American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grants (ACS-IRG #15-172-45).  Applicants must be Assistant Professors at UC San Diego, within six years of their first independent faculty appointment.  Up to four seed grants will be awarded, for up to $30,000 per award.

Applications are due electronically by 5 PM, September 5, 2017.   Grants will be awarded in the fall of 2017.

Applications for ACS seed grants must demonstrate a clear relevance to cancer, and investigators with a history of cancer-relevant research will  be favored.  Other than NIH K series or career development grants solely intended for salary, applicants can have no current support from the national agencies (foundation grants are acceptable provided they are not the result of national-peer-reviewed competition and support different projects).  Applicants must be independent and have a commitment from UCSD for salary and space. 

For more information, please contact Sylvia Sedman, Ext. 7-6952 or ssedman@ucsd.edu
