The CCIL Seed Grant Program is no longer accepting proposals for the 2020 – 2021 cycle. Applications are currently under review, and applicants will be notified in May 2021.
The CCIL Seed Grant Program supports interdisciplinary team research proposals to initiate new collaborations and enhance existing collaborations among faculty. The aims of this seed grant program are to enable faculty teams to:
- Develop novel cancer-focused research ideas that require the involvement of multiple cancer investigators from different disciplines.
- Formulate either a hypothesis-driven or technology-focused research project that relates to one or both of the CCIL programs and their accompanying themes.
- Collect preliminary data or other relevant information to support a feasible approach for grant funding by an NCI recognized funding agency.
- Garner external funding for multi-investigator, program project-level research projects using CCIL support as a catalyst.
