AACR Basic Cancer Research Fellowships

The AACR Basic Cancer Research Fellowships are open to postdoctoral and clinical research fellows  working at an academic, medical, or research institution who will be in the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd
year of their postdoctoral training at the start of the grant term. The research proposed for funding may be in any  area of basic cancer research.
The fellowships provide one-year grants of $50,000 to support the salary and benefits of the Fellow
while working on a mentored basic cancer research project. A partial amount of funds may be
designated for non-personnel expenses, such as research/laboratory supplies, equipment, publication charges for manuscripts that pertain directly to the funded project and other research expenses.
It is anticipated that multiple fellowships will be funded.
