Funding for breast cancer supportsIt’s a good Monday already Funds Fans!  Funding for breast cancer projects and related issues 🙂

The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF), in partnership with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), is pleased to announce the launch of a new National Research Grant Competition on Breast Cancer in Young Women. The competition is seeking proposals for a multi-disciplinary, integrated research program focused on breast cancer in young women. This one-time funding opportunity has been designed to facilitate progress in this underserved research area towards improving the clinical outcomes and quality of life for young women with breast cancer.

The successful Program will bring together a number of independently fundable, synergistic sub-projects, into a single integrated program spanning the multiple disciplines of breast cancer research to support a holistic, “whole woman” approach. Eligible research areas include but are not limited to:

  • Prevention and risk reduction
  • Genomics and molecular oncology
  • Therapeutics
  • Survivorship and psychosocial issues

To focus the efforts of the Canadian research community on breast cancer in young women, with a special focus on women aged 40 years of age or less, with the ultimate goal of improving their clinical outcomes and quality of life

To address a gap in breast cancer research not currently served by traditional operating grants or other existing funding mechanisms

Key Dates:  Letters of Intent deadline:   July 3, 2013  Application deadline:  November 20, 2013
