Request for Applications
The UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center invites applications for the Richard A. Elkus, M.D., Eminent Scholars Program in GI Oncology Research pilot grant.
Richard A. Elkus, M.D., lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in 2005. In his honor, the Elkus family established the Richard A. Elkus, M.D., Eminent Scholars Program in GI Oncology Research at UAB.
- Applicants: The Richard A. Elkus, M.D., Eminent Scholars Program in GI Oncology Research pilot project grant program is open to persons holding a faculty position at any rank (Instructor, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Professor) and leading an independent research program.
- Purpose: To support highly meritorious scientific research in gastrointestinal cancer from the point of energy source entry to the point of waste product exit. All areas of research, from basic mechanisms to translational projects, to clinical therapeutic intervention to public health and epidemiology, are encouraged. This award is intended to “seed” nascent GI cancer projects that will become competitive for extramural funding with the data generated as result of receiving pilot funds.
- Funding: This award is limited to a maximum of $75,000 for a 12-month period beginning May 1, 2015. One application will be funded.
- The applications will be reviewed using NIH criteria: http://grants1.nih.gov/grants/peer/reviewer_guidelines.htm#general_guidelines
- Please email a PDF of your application to Susan Ruppert (email@example.com) by 5 p.m. on Monday, March 9, 2015.
