Apply for Funding

Pre-Clinical Testing Facility Concept Grant

Funding is available from the Walther Cancer Foundation to generate data that will help to advance research projects into pre-clinical testing. This mechanism is designed to bring researchers with promising compounds together with collaborators experienced with models of cancer. Collaborative teams seeking to generate in vitro and/or in vivo data are encouraged to apply. While recognizing that successfully advancing a therapeutic to pre-clinical and clinical trials is a complex multi-step effort,  proposals will be considered that address any aspect of this pipeline for either therapeutic or diagnostic compounds.

Funding: 

Funding is for two years contingent upon satisfactory progress, as evaluated in a yearly progress report and will total no more than $200,000. This can support items such as salary, supplies, and core facilities. A budget outline is all that required during the initial application stage.

Application Process and Deadline:

  • There will be a two-step application process. The initial stage consists of an abstract and research overview. These are due by 5 p.m. EDT on June 30, 2017. Qualifying proposals will be invited to prepare the second stage which will include a 25 minute presentation to the review committee on Friday, September 29, 2017.
  • Applicants must be faculty at University of Notre Dame or Indiana University School of Medicine-South Bend (IUSM-SB) and be full members of HCRI (online membership form:  http://HarperCancer.nd.edu/) or willing to affiliate as such.
