Brief Description

Pilot Study Award Overview:

The Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer is announcing funds for approximately twelve Pilot Study Program awards to be allocated based on scientific merit. Pilot Study Program awards will support investigatorinitiated projects in all areas of ovarian cancer research. In addition, projects designed to analyze data from already funded clinical trials will be considered. The two year awards will provide a total of $75,000 in funding, with the possibility of an additional $25,000 awarded in year two, upon evaluation of year one progress, contingent on availability of funds. Funds are for direct costs only; institutional overhead and indirect costs will not be included in the award.

Applicants may budget for salary support, materials, supplies, consumables, travel costs for scientific meetings, and other expenses as justified. Budget and budget justification must be included with the application.

Funding priority will be given to proposals that are:
 Innovative
 Multidisciplinary
 Likely leading to submission of grant applications for independently funded investigations
 Conveying translational research potential

Eligibility: Investigators at the assistant, associate or full professor level (or equivalent) are encouraged to apply.
