LUNGevity Foundation issues an RFA for 2019 Career Development Awards for Translational Research in Lung Cancer

LUNGevity has issued a Request for Applications for translational research for Career Development Awards that will be granted in 2019. The RFA is available on the LUNGevity website and is also posted on the proposalCENTRAL website.

LUNGevity’s Career Development Awards for Translational Research program was created to support future research leaders who will keep the field of lung cancer research vibrant with new ideas. Since 2002, LUNGevity has funded 127 projects at 59 institutions in 23 states.

Projects that will be funded in 2019 are expected to have a direct impact on the early detection of lung cancer and/or individualized lung cancer treatment, including through targeted therapy and immunotherapy.

Successful applicants may receive $100,000 per year for a possible period of three years and will participate as non-voting members of LUNGevity’s Scientific Advisory Board for the duration of the award. Applicants must be within the first five years of their first faculty appointment. The Career Development Awards are mentored awards, and a mentoring plan is part of the required submission.

Letters of intent must be submitted by Tuesday, Feb. 19.

The RFA can be found here.
