New funding mechanism for melanoma research announced

The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), the nation's largest and oldest professional society of basic, translational, and clinical cancer research scientists, is now accepting applications for the AACR-William S. Graham Foundation Fellows Grant for Melanoma Research in 2004.

This grant is a unique addition to the growing program of AACR Research Fellowships. The AACR-William S. Graham Foundation Fellows Grant for Melanoma Research will support innovative research by a meritorious young investigator dedicated to pursuing the prevention and cure of melanoma by presenting the Fellow with the research funds to pursue an independent line of investigation within the context of his or her current Fellowship placement. The grant will allow the Fellow to acquire the equipment and supplies needed to pursue a new direction in his or her research program, to develop preliminary data to support a future project, or to investigate a new technique that otherwise would not be possible in the absence of this funding.

The Fellows Grant will provide a one-year grant of at least $30,000 to be used for direct research expenses; indirect costs are not provided. Research proposals are restricted to those basic, translational, clinical, or prevention research proposals with 100 percent applicability to melanoma. Candidates must hold the current status of clinical or postdoctoral fellow or the equivalent and be conducting research at a U.S.-based academic or medical institution. Candidates must be in the third, fourth or fifth year of their fellowship status and may not hold a full-time faculty appointment at any level at the start of the grant term (July 1, 2004). Employees or subcontractors of a national government or private industry are not eligible for these awards. In addition to the award amount noted above, the recipient will receive registration and support for travel expenses to attend the 2004 AACR Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida and to accept th
