UFHCC Pilot Project Awards

Interdisciplinary Collaborative Pilot Awards– Now Accepting Applications

The UF Health Cancer Center (UFHCC) offers funding for pilot projects to encourage new collaborative cancer research.  Such interactions can bring new and exciting directions that focus on new collaborations and new lines of research.  The purpose of this mechanism is to provide developmental support for promising cancer-focused research projects that propose innovative research across multiple disciplines for a better understanding of the biology, etiology, detection, prevention, treatment, and control of cancer.

The goals of the UFHCC Pilot Research Grant Program are to:

  • Provide developmental support for promising cancer-focused collaborative research projects with a well-defined major objective or theme;
  • Create synergies and lasting collaborations between cancer researchers that will lead to impactful publications and stimulate collaborative grant applications for future Federal or other peer-reviewed extramural cancer research funding. 

LOIs are due by ­October 23, 2017 and should be emailed to ResearchAdmin@cancer.ufl.edu.  All LOIs will be administratively reviewed for eligibility and scientifically promising projects will be invited to submit full proposals.
