Translation Acceleration Grant 2017

Movember Translation Acceleration Grant

Prostate Cancer Canada (PCC) invites applications for investigator-initiated Movember Translation Acceleration Grants (TAG) that address a significant issue in the management of prostate cancer. The intent of this program is not to support new discovery. Rather proposals should leverage existing knowledge and capabilities to accelerate impact without overlapping currently funded Prostate Cancer Canada and Movember initiatives.

While the area of prostate cancer covered by the proposal is open, the emphasis of this funding opportunity is to develop an intervention that can be further studied first-in-man, in the form of an interventional or observational study immediately following the funding period. It is expected that a multidisciplinary and multi-institutional approach will be required and each application may consist of independent investigators based in multiple institutions with a lead Principal Investigator. This competition is open to projects studying any stage of the prostate cancer journey but PCC will only consider projects that are completely focused on prostate cancer.
 
This opportunity is awarded by Prostate Cancer Canada and proudly funded by the Movember Foundation.
