Investigators sought for Cancer Society seed grants

The Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center is soliciting American Cancer Society-supported seed grants up to $50,000 for the period of Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2014.

American Cancer Society (ACS) awards are intended to support independent, self-directed investigators early in their careers who have no current national grant support of their own.

Seed grants are intended to support beginning investigators in initiating cancer research projects that can generate preliminary results enabling them to compete successfully for national research grants in all areas of cancer research.

All applications must be emailed as a single, complete PDF to Matt Winfrey and Wally Longo by 4 p.m. on Oct. 17.
