Grants to USA, Canada, and International investigators associated with nonprofits, government agencies, universities, hospitals, and laboratories to support novel and innovative cancer research in its early and conceptual stages. An LOI must be submitted prior to submission of a full application. Eligible studies are those that involve scientific risk but potentially lead to a breakthrough in a particular area, or to the development of novel techniques, agents, methodologies, models, or applications that could have a major impact on cancer research.
SWOG’s mission is to improve the practice of cancer medicine in preventing, detecting, and treating cancer, and to enhance the quality of life for cancer survivors, primarily through design and conduct of clinical trials. SWOG is a National Cancer Institute-supported network of more than 4,000 cancer researchers at more than 500 institutions in the U.S., Canada, and beyond. Additional educational and cancer research support is provided by SWOG’s non-profit, philanthropic partner, The Hope Foundation for Cancer Research.
The SWOG/Hope Foundation Impact Award encourages novel and innovative SWOG research by supporting early and conceptual stages of these projects. The work proposed should use resources from completed SWOG trials or be directly translatable to clinical trials in SWOG and the NCTN in the foreseeable future.
The Impact Executive Committee will select the projects for which a full application is requested. Projects will be prioritized based on (1) scientific merit; and (2) clinical relevance and potential to integrate with clinical trials. Priority will be given to projects that address issues germane to ongoing or planned SWOG clinical trials, or to projects that show potential for leading to a future clinical trial.
Funding for smaller feasibility projects that are critical to the conduct of future SWOG trials are also encouraged. Indirect costs are included in the total award and limited to a rate of 25%.
