2019 Pilot Funding Announcement

Letter from Dr. Louis Weiner

I am pleased to announce grant opportunities designed to provide seed money awards for the initiation of promising new projects leading to peer-reviewed fundingand/or high-impact publications. In order to maximize the potential that projects will lead to peer-reviewed funding, all projects are required to go through a mock review process prior to submission of the full proposal. A Letter of Intent stating which grant opportunity you are applying for and the purpose of the grant along with the specific aims is due by Friday, March 1, 2019. These will be reviewed and comments will be provided to assist you with your full proposal. Full proposals are due by Monday, April 1, 2019. Projects must begin no later than Monday, July 1, 2019 and be completed by Tuesday, June 30, 2020.

Walking Warriors Breast Cancer Research Grant ($50,000) for a Junior or Mid-Career investigator to conduct research on how to prevent, detect, or treat metastatic breast cancer. Research should be well justified by current evidence and preliminary studies, be feasible in a one year pilot with publishable results, and clearly demonstrate how results will lead to an R-series grant.

The Walking Warriors Battling Breast Cancer is a 501(c)(3) charity founded to carry forward the fight against breast cancer. With feet on the ground, the group raised the funds for this dedicated grant opportunity. Funding is for 1 year and is not renewable. Applicants should be Assistant or Associate Professors.

Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) Developmental Funds Awards (DFA), funded through Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center's CCSG, which is funded by NCI. The grant is available to all faculty members. Funding is not renewable.

  • The purpose of the CCSG Award is to support pilot projects that allow GLCCC investigators to pursue innovative ideas and high-priority research areas that will lead to future peer-reviewed funding and high-impact publications.
  • Collaborative research that comes from interactions between institutions (GU, Hackensack Meridian Health, MWHC) and/or between CCSG research programs is encouraged.
  • Projects related to grant applications that were scored but unfunded due to need for further preliminary data where CCSG funding will lead to resubmission with a high likelihood of funding are highly encouraged. Projects should fall within one or more of the following categories:
    1. Funding for a research project in one of the five cross-cutting initiatives of the cancer center that will likely lead to future peer-reviewed funding (Data Science, Minority Health and Health Disparities, Precision Medicine, Survivorship and Immunotherapy)
    2. Funding for grants applications that were scored but unfunded to allow the PI to gather more data and resubmit with a high likelihood of funding. Applications for this category of CCSG DFA must append the pink sheets.
    3. Funding for other PI-selected topics that will lead to future peer-reviewed funding
  • Junior faculty must demonstrate independence.
  • Projects must be completed on time. Only projects ready to begin July 1, 2019 will be considered (i.e., if your project is tied to a clinical trial, the trial should have IRB approval, FDA approval and funding).

ACS Young Investigator Awards (2 awards - each 1 year at $30,000), is fundedthrough Georgetown Lombardi's Institutional Research Grant (IRG), which is sponsored by the American Cancer Society (ACS).

  • The purpose of the IRG is to help launch promising new projects by junior faculty members so they can obtain preliminary results and compete successfully for national research grants.
  • The grant will provide $30,000 for 1 year each for 2 junior faculty members.
  • Each of the awards will be for 1 year only, and is not renewable. Priority will be given to projects that have a likelihood of future funding.
  • Each proposal must have a clearly identified mentor, a letter from the mentor stating their support for the project and how they will mentor the applicant. A mentorship agreement needs to be signed. Applicants who do not demonstrate evidence of independence will not be eligible.
  • Projects must be completed on time; no-cost carry over may not be assumed. Thus, only projects that are ready to begin will be considered.
  • Awards are for junior faculty only (usually Assistant Professor or equivalent), who are eligible to apply for independent national competitive research grants (e.g., NIH R01 or an ACS project grant), but who do not currently hold or have not previously held such a grant.
  • Applicants must be either on an independent investigator track or demonstrate clear independence from their mentors. Tenure-track faculty will be assumed to be on an independent investigator track. Research track faculty may be eligible for this award, but will need to demonstrate through their application and the mentor letter that they are already functioning independently and that the project involves independent research.
  • Applicants should be within six (6) years of their first independent research or faculty appointment.
  • Applications from junior investigators who have received prior support from an IRG will not be considered.
  • Applications must focus on or be relevant to the study of cancer, including basic, clinical, translational, or population sciences. This includes research conducted in allied fields and disciplines outside of oncology and from a range of perspectives that help broadly contribute to our understanding of cancer prevention, causation, treatment, or survivorship and related issues.
  • Applications are sought from members of the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, as well as faculty throughout Georgetown University Medical Center, Georgetown University Main Campus, Georgetown University Law Center, MedStar Health, and John Theurer Cancer Center (JTCC) (our cancer research partner).

Tumor Immunology/Immunotherapy Pilot Funding Sher Grants are made available through the generous gift of Stan and Linda Sher. This Award is anticipated to provide support for two different categories of investigators:

  1. Junior faculty within the cancer center (within 5 years of completion of training) to assist them in transitioning from training to an independent career as either a laboratory scientist focused on tumor immunology or a physician scientist focused on cancer immunotherapy.
  2. Established scientists attempting to transition components of their research toward exploring the potential impact on, or contributions of, the immune system.

Potential topics for pilot funding include:

  • Integrating immunotherapy with targeted therapy, radiation and surgery
  • Identifying mechanisms of resistance to immunotherapy
  • Predictive biomarker studies of response or toxicity - including imaging, blood based and tumor based
  • Adoptive cellular therapy projects
  • Study of the role of host polymorphisms and the microbiome in response to therapy
  • Creation of immune competent preclinical models for testing immunotherapy
  • Identifying targetable mechanisms of T-cell exclusion
  • Quality of life or health services research focused on establishing the relative value of immunotherapy
  • Survivorship issues with immunotherapy

Applicants may be members of the faculty at either Georgetown University Medical Center, other departments within Georgetown University, MedStar Health, or the John Theurer Cancer Center (JTCC).

Georgetown Lombardi and JTCC Research Consortium Grants are one (1) year awards funded through the consortium to foster research collaboration between JTCC (Lombardi-NJ) and Lombardi-DC investigators. It is anticipated that such collaborations will lead to future funding to support the development of promising new cancer research discoveries. The award criteria are:

  • Each proposal must be multi-PI with a PI from Lombardi-DC and one from Lombardi-NJ.
  • Each award will be for one (1) year only and is not renewable. Priority will be given to projects that have a high likelihood for future funding.
  • Junior faculty applicants must demonstrate independence.
  • Projects must be completed on time. Extensions will not be approved except under extreme extenuating circumstances. Only projects ready to begin July 1, 2019 will be considered.

Circle Grant Application

The CIRCLE grant program was created by the Dean for Medical Education, Ray Mitchell, M.D., in 2001, to stimulate creativity and reward excellence in undergraduate medical education.  His vision was to make a substantial investment over several years to enable faculty to pursue innovative educational initiatives for the benefit of our medical students and the institution.  Using institutionally-funded protected time, this investment was designed to provide energy for competitive faculty-driven curricular improvement, and competition it has been.  To date, we have reviewed over 160 applications to fund over 60 grants.  A number of them have already led to additional external funding and virtually all have changed the culture of our curriculum at Georgetown.

Find more information and the application for the Circle Grant on the Circle Grant webpage on the OFAA website.
