Early Clinical Investigator Award - Solicits applications from institutions to provide cancer physicians within the first 3 years of a faculty appointment as an assistant professor the opportunity to develop clinical research skills and to gain experience in advanced methods and experimental approaches needed to become successful clinical investigators. The award will protect time from clinical responsibilities to allow the early clinical investigator to develop and conduct investigator initiated clinical trials and to establish a partnership with a laboratory-based collaborator in order to design and conduct correlative studies needed to interpret the outcome of an interventional trial. The overall goal of this mechanism is to increase the pool of clinical investigators at Texas academic institutions who are conducting patient-oriented studies, capitalizing on basic discoveries and translating them through conduct of innovative clinical trials involving cancer patients or individuals at risk for cancer. Institutions may submit up to 2 applications.
Award: Up to $1,500,000 (total costs); Maximum duration: 5 years.
