The application process is now open for BCAN’s Bladder Cancer Research Innovation Award. The deadline is February 12, 2014 to submit a Letter of Intent for this award of $300,000, over a two-year period.
BCAN is pleased to announce this new award, supported by the James Family Foundation, in conjunction with Partner Fund Management, which will support the work of one investigator with an exceptionally novel and creative project with great potential to produce a breakthrough in the management of bladder cancer. The Innovation Award will fund $300,000 over two years. Applicants may apply for one award – the Young Investigator Award or the Innovation Research Award.
The aim of the 2014 Bladder Cancer Research Innovation Award is to support exceptionally novel and creative projects with great potential to produce breakthroughs in the management of bladder cancer. Proposals will be accepted for creative ideas and innovative approaches that have direct application and relevance to bladder cancer.
“There have been so many advances in the cancer arena. With this Innovation Award, we hope to bring new perspectives and forward-thinking ideas to bladder cancer research,” stated Chris James of the James Family Foundation and Partner Fund Management. “This is the sixth most diagnosed cancer in the U.S., yet there have been no significant advances in the disease in more than 20 years. We are hopeful that this research award will move us in the right direction.”
The 2014 Bladder Cancer Research Innovation Award will complement BCAN’s 2014 Young Investigator Awards, generously supported by The JPB Foundation.
