The Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network (BCAN) is pleased to announce two 2018 Young Investigator Awards (YIA), to support the development of outstanding early career research scientists and clinical cancer research investigators who have demonstrated a commitment to improving the understanding and treatment of bladder cancer.
In addition, for the first time, BCAN is designating an additional YIA for Patient-Centered Clinical Research. To compete for this award, investigators must be working in a research environment capable of supporting transformational patient-oriented clinical bladder cancer research (e.g. studies of access to care, quality of care, quality of life, health disparities, and patient-centered outcomes research).
“Supporting early career investigators with the YIA has been a priority since the beginning of BCAN,” notes Andrea Maddox-Smith, Chief Executive Officer of BCAN. “Adding this new Patient-Centered Clinical Research YIA is yet another step toward improving the lives of those in the bladder cancer community.”
