FY14 Research Funding Opportunities: Focusing on Young Investigators

Susan G. Komen is excited to announce funding opportunities through five grant mechanisms for which breast cancer researchers anywhere in the world are invited to apply. These research grants are made possible in part through fundraising efforts, such as the Race for the Cure, at local Komen Affiliates across the US. If you’ve participated in a Komen Fundraising Event, you’ve directly helped to fund breast cancer research opportunities such as these.

Each year, Susan G. Komen’s Scientific Advisory Board guides our research focus by identifying the most promising areas of breast cancer research and the critical questions that need to be answered. Komen is committed attracting and retaining the future leaders in breast cancer research and this year Komen plans to focus our funding efforts on Training and Career Development for early-career investigators to investigate issues important to every individual’s breast cancer. Learn more about our Requests for Applications (RFAs).

Komen strives to identify the best science around the world and we look forward to announcing the exceptional research projects and trainees that will be funded by Komen in May 2014.

Scientists are invited to apply at proposalcentral.altum.com by September 5, 2013 at 12:00 pm EST.

Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure®, we have invested more than $1.9 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
