Mark Foundation for Cancer Research Invites Applications for Emerging Leader Awards

The Mark Foundation for Cancer Research supports scientists answering the most complex questions in cancer.

To that end, the foundation is inviting applications for its Emerging Leader Awards program. Through the program, grants of up to $750,000 over three years will be awarded to outstanding early-career investigators in support of high-impact high-risk projects that are distinct from their current research portfolio. Proposals for grants must be centered on evidence-based laboratory, data, and/or medical science.

Letters of Intent are mandatory and are due June 4. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by August 24, 2020. If you are interested in applying for this program, please contact the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs as soon as possible, but no later than May 26, 2020.

To be eligible, applicants must have an MD, Ph.D., or equivalent and must be employed by a U.S. nonprofit academic institution (although applicants need not be citizen of the United States).
