The Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) Cancer Program invites applications for Pilot Grant funding for 2010. The purpose of this funding program is to provide resources for innovative projects by investigators in the field of cancer stem cell biology, including basic, translational or clinical research. This funding is for groundbreaking, innovative, high- impact research projects that could fundamentally enhance biomedical research. Particularly welcomed are applications that promote the Program mission: to identify critical genes and pathways that sufficiently distinguish cancer from normal stem cells and hence serve as candidate targets for therapy.
HSCI may fund up to 3 pilot grants per year. Each submission may request one or two year of funding.
