The Damon Runyon Clinical Investigator Award supports young physician-scientists conducting patient-oriented cancer research. The goal is to increase the number of physicians capable of moving seamlessly between the laboratory and the patient’s bedside in search of breakthrough treatments. Preference will be given to research that adheres to the “Handshake Rule,” meaning that the physician will conduct research studies that directly involve patients.
Scientific or budgetary overlap with other funded projects is not allowed. For more information on budgetary overlap, please read the following information: http://www.damonrunyon.org/for_scientists/more/clinical_investigator_award_overview#funding
As the University of Washington may only submit THREE proposals for this opportunity, the School of Medicine has established an internal review process to determine which proposals will move forward to the funding agency.
To apply, please email the following to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 20, 2012:
- Applicant biosketch, including current and pending funding sources
- Max. 3 page description of the research project that identifies: (1) specific aims; (2) significance of research goals; (3) research methods; and (4) a brief explanation of mentor support (i.e. ways in which mentor will support applicant and his/her project)
Applicants will be notified as soon as a decision is reached. The selected applicants must adhere to OSP’s deadlines outlined in GIM-19: http://www.washington.edu/research/osp/gim/gim19.html
Please contact Maren McDaniel at email@example.com, or (206)-543-6116 with any questions about the internal review process.
Investigators who identify a grant, award or fellowship program that restricts the number of applications that can be submitted from an Institution should immediately contact their Chairperson, Associate Dean for Research (or Dean, if no ADR) and the Office of Research (see below) if they intend to prepare a response. Failure to do so, or to meet the deadlines for submission of pre-proposal, will preclude submission of the application through the Office of Sponsored Programs.
