Grant Description

The Early Investigator Research Award supports prostate cancer-focused research opportunities for individuals in the early stages of their careers, under the guidance of a designated Mentor. This opportunity allows for young investigators to develop a research project, investigate a problem or question in prostate cancer research, and further their intellectual development as a prostate cancer researcher of the future. The predoctoral or postdoctoral investigator is considered the Principal Investigator (PI) of the application, and must exhibit strong potential for, and commitment to, pursuing a career as an investigator at the forefront of prostate cancer research; however, the PI is not required to have previous prostate cancer research experience. Applications must include at least one Mentor, appropriate to the proposed research project, who has experience in prostate cancer research and mentoring as demonstrated by a record of active funding, recent publications, and successful mentorship. The selected Mentor(s) should also demonstrate a clear commitment to the development of the PI toward independence as a prostate cancer researcher. The PI must outline an individualized, prostate cancer-focused researcher development plan. The researcher development plan should include a clearly articulated strategy for acquiring the necessary skills, competence, and expertise that will enable the PI to successfully complete the proposed research project and foster the PIмs development as an independent prostate cancer researcher. An environment appropriate to the proposed mentoring and research project must be clearly described, although any deficiencies of resources and/or mentorship at the PIмs institution can be mitigated through collaboration(s) with other institutions. If the PI will be utilizing resources at another institution to successfully complete the proposed project, then the PI is strongly encouraged to designate a co-Mentor at the collaborating institution. All applications for the Early Investigator Research Award are to be written by the PI, with appropriate direction from the Mentor(s). The PCRP seeks applications from investigators from a wide spectrum of disciplines including, but not limited to, basic science, engineering, bioinformatics, population science, translational research, and clinical research. Multidisciplinary projects are encouraged. In addition, applicants are expected to address at least one of the PCRP focus areas and are highly encouraged to address one or more of the PCRP overarching challenges. If the proposed project does not address any of the overarching challenges, the application should include a description to justify how the project will nevertheless address a critical need in the field of prostate cancer research and/or patient care. The inclusion of preliminary data relevant to prostate cancer and the proposed project is encouraged but not required. Any preliminary data provided should be from the PI, Mentor(s), or member(s) of the collaborating team.
