Susan G. Komen for the Cure Invites Applications for Breast Cancer Research Grants


Komen for the Cure is accepting proposals for two breast cancer research programs.

The Komen Investigator Initiated Research Grants Program is designed to stimulate exploration of important issues and novel approaches that lead to reductions in breast cancer incidence and/or mortality within the next decade. Research projects must focus on one of the following research issues in breast cancer research:
molecular predictors of high risk and early disease; biologic underpinnings and therapeutic implications of micrometastases; targeted therapies for hormone receptor positive breast cancer with resistance to endocrine therapy; epigenetic alterations; and disparities in breast cancer outcomes across population groups. Grants will be awarded to a single principal investigator or two co-principal investigators. Applicants may request up to $400,000 each over two years or up to $600,000 over three years.

The Komen Career Catalyst Research Grants for Breast Cancer program is designed to provide unique opportunities for scientists in the early stages of their career to further their research independence by providing support for research exploring important issues and novel approaches that lead to substantial progress in breast cancer research and reductions in breast cancer incidence and/or mortality within the next decade. Research projects must focus on one of the following research issues in breast cancer research: biology and translational or disparities in breast cancer outcomes across population groups. Grants will be awarded to a single principal investigator. Applicants may request up to $300,000 each over two years or $450,000 each over three years.

Applications for both research programs will be accepted from investigators anywhere in the world who hold a doctoral degree, including M.D., Ph.D., Dr.P.H., D.O., or equivalent and work at a nonprofit institution.
