ASCO invites applications for research based on data from CancerLinQ Discovery

The American Society of Clinical Oncology is inviting applications for research grants for projects that use data from CancerLinQ Discovery, an offering of ASCO’s CancerLinQ initiative, as a source.

CancerLinQ Discovery provides curated sets of de-identified data from cancer patients to academic researchers, government agencies, and others in the oncology community to generate practical knowledge that will improve cancer care.

The grants—as many meritorious awards as funds permit—are being funded by the Mission Endowment of Conquer Cancer, The ASCO Foundation. Each one-year grant covers the cost of the CancerLinQ Discovery data set and a kickoff meeting at ASCO headquarters and contributes to personnel and/or research expenses.

Applicants are invited to submit research proposals consistent with ASCO’s mission to conquer cancer through research, education, and promotion of the highest quality patient care that can be addressed using CancerLinQ Discovery data.

Research topics may include adoption of treatment guidelines across … Continue reading ASCO invites applications for research based on data from CancerLinQ Discovery
