AACR-Sontag Foundation Brain Cancer Research Fellowship
Closing Date: 17/01/2023
An international award to encourage and support a postdoctoral or clinical research fellow to conduct brain cancer research and establish a successful career path in the field.
The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) is a large professional organisation dedicated to advancing cancer research. Its mission is to prevent and cure cancer through research, education, communication and collaboration.
The Sontag Foundation is a funder of brain cancer research based in the United States, established in 2002 by Frederick and Susan Sontag following Susan’s successful battle with a normally lethal form of brain cancer.
The AACR-Sontag Foundation Brain Cancer Research Fellowship represents a joint effort to encourage and support a postdoctoral or clinical research fellow to conduct brain cancer research and to establish a successful career path in this field. The proposed project may be basic, clinical, translational, or epidemiological in nature and must have direct applicability and relevance to brain cancer.
Potential project topics include, but are not limited to, molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying primary brain cancer, tumour interactions with the microenvironment, novel therapeutic modalities/agents, diagnostics, imaging techniques, unique or novel models for brain tumours, and drug delivery strategies.
Projects focused on secondary (metastatic) brain cancer with applicability to primary brain cancer will also be considered. Applications are invited from researchers currently in the brain cancer field as well as from investigators with experience in other areas of cancer or biomedical research who have promising ideas or approaches that will directly apply to brain cancer.
