ALK Positive/LUNGevity is requesting applications for the 2020 ALK-positive Lung Cancer Research Award. Letters of intent are due Feb. 14.

Funded projects are expected to have a direct impact on the outcomes of patients with advanced ALK-positive lung cancer, but innovative proposals that address other unmet needs in the ALK-positive lung cancer space are also invited for submission.

The ALK-positive award is open to researchers at United States and international institutions.

At the time of application, an international candidate must name a co-principal investigator who is employed at a U.S. institution.

This award is in addition to the LUNGevity Career Development Award. Information for those awards will be announced separately.

There are two award mechanisms:

Transformational Award

The successful applicant may receive up to $500,000 over an award term of two years for the Transformational Award.

Clinical Trial Innovation Award.

The successful applicant may receive up to $750,000 over an award term of two years for the Clinical Trial Innovation Award.
