ACADEMIC COLLABORATIVE GRANTS

PROOF OF CONCEPT

To support exciting, perhaps risky, innovative ideas in all areas of basic cancer research. The expectation is that this early-phase grant will enable the researcher to obtain enough preliminary results to apply for competitive external funding.

BRIDGING THE GAP IN CANCER (JOINT MICC-YEDA)

The goal of this program is to facilitate translation of academic research to clinical developments addressing unmet clinical needs with novel therapeutics as well as diagnostics and imaging tools, for the benefit of cancer patients.

STUDENT AND POST-DOC CANCER RESEARCH INNOVATION AWARDS COMPETITION

The MICC 1st Student and Post-doc Cancer Research Innovation Awards Competition was held on November 29, 2018. The aim of the competition was to stimulate creative thinking among students and post-docs, and to inspire collaborations among students and post-docs from different research groups and/or disciplines.

During the event, applicants who submitted proposals presented their projects and all the participants voted for their favorites.

The following project proposals, which received the highest number of votes, were awarded research funding of $10,000 apiece

PhD IN CANCER IMMUNOLOGY PROGRAM

The Moross Integrated Cancer Center has launched a new Ph.D. research program, aiming to promote basic research in cancer immunology. The program supports collaborative Ph.D. projects co-supervised by one PI from the Department of Immunology, and an additional scientist, from any other department, who is interested in cancer research.

Under the program, three PhD fellowships were awarded this year for the following projects.

MOROSS INTERDISCIPLINARY CANCER RESEARCH GRANT PROGRAM

The grant aims to support innovative approaches to important challenges in contemporary cancer research, using the combined expertise of at least two scientific fields. The proposals were submitted jointly by a team of at least two scientists, one of whom being a member of the Life Sciences faculties (Biology, Biochemistry) and one being a member of another faculty.

CLINICAL COLLABORATIVE GRANTS

The objective of this funding program is to promote both basic and translational biomedical research, by bringing together scientists and physicians. The expectation is that this program will facilitate the incorporation of novel approaches from the bench to clinical applications.
