The Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, in partnership with TRI’s Rural Research Network, has created the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute Rural Research Award Program. The goal of this award program is to support investigators or teams or investigators seeking to collect data for competitive NCI/NIH R01 grant submissions. The program will fund up to three separate awards with a maximum budget of $100,000 each. Ideally, the program will fund two to three pilot/feasibility studies that directly recruit participants and/or studies that are primarily focused on data analysis. The program is open to investigators who are a full or associate member of the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute. To learn more about becoming a Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute member or to apply, visit the Institute’s membership page.
Priority will be given to projects that focus on prostate, colon, breast, and/or lung cancer; cancer patient outcomes; cancer screening and prevention; and/or cancer health disparities.
Award recipients will be required to:
- Participate in Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute activities, including but not limited to Program Meetings, Annual Meetings, and Institute-sponsored seminars
- Complete annual surveys to collect funding outcome metrics
- Submit a final, written progress report toward the end of the award period
- Any publications resulting from the award will be required to cite the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute and TRI according to their citation requirements
Research will be conducted in partnership with the UAMS Rural Research Network.
