Each year, we release Request for Applications or Letter of
Intent (LOI) Announcements to communicate which grant mechanisms and scientific
focus areas are available for funding. The types of mechanisms and the
scientific focus areas may vary from year to year.
$450,000 combined direct and indirect costs; ($150,000 per
year for up to 3 years)
Early Career breast cancer researchers anywhere in the world
are invited to apply for our Career Catalyst Research Grants.
These Komen Training and Career Development awards seek to
bridge the funding gap faced by faculty as they start their careers in breast
cancer research. Grants funded by Komen provide the preparation necessary to
compete for independent funding as an established and successful breast cancer
CCR Grants provide unique opportunities for scientists who
have held faculty positions for no more
than five years by the Application due date (September 6, 2017). CCR grants
provide support for hypothesis-driven research projects that will lead to a reduction
in breast cancer deaths by 2026.
There are two focus areas for the FY18 Career Catalyst
The goal of this focus area is to support studies on new
treatments for ER+ breast cancer and TNBC that have developed resistance to
standard therapy, which will lead to a
reduction in breast cancer deaths by 2026.
Proposals must focus directly on either ER+ or TNBC.
The goal of this focus area is to support translational research into the understanding, detection, and treatment of metastatic (Stage IV) breast cancer which will lead to a reduction in breast cancer deaths by 2026.
