NIH Funding OpportunityOutstanding Investigator Award In Cancer Research Available

NIH has published a funding opportunity announcement for the Outstanding Investigator Award in any area of cancer research.

The objective of the NCI Outstanding Investigator Award is to provide long-term support to experienced investigators with outstanding records of cancer research productivity who propose to conduct exceptional research.

The award would allow an institution to nominate a program director or principal investigator for a seven-year R35 grant.

According to the summary, the award is intended to “allow investigators the opportunity to take greater risks, be more adventurous in their lines of inquiry, or take the time to develop new techniques.”

“The research projects should break new ground or extend previous discoveries toward new directions or applications that may lead to a breakthrough that will advance biomedical, behavioral, or clinical cancer research,” the announcement states.

Earliest submission date for applications is Sept. 20. The announcement is posted on the NIH website.
