The Advanced Clinical Research Award (ACRA) is a topic-specific competition designed to fund investigators who are committed to clinical cancer research. Past topics have included breast cancer, colorectal cancer, hematological malignancies, lung cancer, and sarcoma. This research must have a patient-oriented focus, including a clinical research study and/or translational research involving human subjects. Proposals with a predominant focus on in vitro or animal studies (even if clinically relevant) are not allowed.
The ACRA is a three-year cancer research grant totaling $450,000, paid in three annual increments of $150,000 to the awardee’s institution. The applicant must be a physician (MD, DO, or international equivalent) who is in the 4th to 9th year of a full-time faculty appointment in a clinical department at an academic medical institution at the time of the research grant submission.
The 2013 ACRA in Breast Cancer competition is now closed. For more information, please read the most recent Request for Proposals.
