Kimmel Scholar and Translational Science
Deadline: Wednesday, December 5, 2012 at Noon
The Sidney Kimmel Foundation for Cancer Research
is soliciting applications for the Kimmel Scholar Award and the Kimmel
Translational Science Award. A brief description of each award follows.
Further details can be found at the Foundation's website: http://www.kimmel.org
and click on "Foundation for Cancer Research."
Kimmel Scholar Award
The Foundation expects to select up to ten grant recipients (young investigators
dedicated to a career in cancer research) who will receive $100,000
per year for two years. Qualified applicants must hold an M.D., Ph.D.
or equivalent graduate degree and must perform research in an American
not-for-profit institution during the period of Kimmel Foundation support.
Applications are limited to those who achieved the equivalent rank of
Assistant Professor on or after July, 2009. However, physicians who
have both clinical and research responsibility are eligible if appointed
on or after July, 2008. These awards are designed for researchers who
do not yet have their own R01 funding.
Awardees must not receive funding simultaneously from similar scholar
awards, but may have funding from training grants (ASCO, AACR, etc.)
or career development awards. Applicants with a prior scholar award
may apply if that funding will cease before the Kimmel Scholar Award
begins on July 1, 2013.
Occasionally, those holding a scholar award from a non-cancer related
Foundation will be eligible, as long as the work supported does not
primarily overlap with the cancer research described. Questions regarding
eligibility based on level of current funding should be addressed to
Dr. Cohen at email@example.com.
The Kimmel Translational Science Award
The Foundation provides up to five additional awards specifically for
physicians engaged in translational science. Eligibility includes those
with M.D. or equivalent degrees, who have achieved the rank of Assistant
Professor on or after July, 2008. Candidates must not hold R01 funding
for the laboratory component of their cancer research. Applicants must
demonstrate a significant personal involvement in the laboratory component
of the translational project described. The translational research may
involve primarily animal studies but must include reasonable application
to subsequent human investigation.
Note: Before asking questions of the Foundation regarding the applications/process,
please check out their "FAQS" section http://www.kimmel.org/FAQs40.html.
While an internal selection is not required for these awards, the Cancer
Center would like to know who plans to apply. Please send an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to
apply for one of these awards.
