Innovation Awards

These awards promote ground-breaking cancer research across the broad continua of cancer - from fundamental laboratory science to community intervention, from disease prevention to palliative care, and from childhood to adult.

Clinical Innovation Awards (not currently available)

The Clinical Innovation Awards support novel programs that demonstrate significant potential for innovation in patient care and services and elevate current care models or break new ground at UNC at Chapel Hill. Awards can address needs across the clinical spectrum from early detection to palliative care, and from childhood to adult. Clinical programs with promise for future sustainability are encouraged. Clinical or clinical-translational research projects are not eligible for Clinical Innovation Awards.

The deadline for the next round has not been set. Six-weeks-notice will be provided between the announcement and deadline.

Core Facility Pilot Project Awards (not currently available)

The deadline for the next round has not been set. Six-weeks-notice will be provided between the announcement and deadline.

Core Facility / Shared Instrumentation Equipment Awards

The UCRF supports awards for the purchase of new, shared research equipment for core resources or groups of investigators that will improve and enhance cancer research at UNC Chapel Hill.

The deadline for the 2012-13 round is August 24, 2012.  Please submit your request electronically to Dede Corvinus (dede_corvinus@med.unc.edu ). 

Health-e-NC (H-e-NC) Pilot Projects (not currently available)

The UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, with support from the University Cancer Research Fund (UCRF), is sponsoring an exciting new pilot research opportunity to support the Optimizing NC Cancer Outcomes Initiative, one of three major themes of the UCRF Strategic Plan. Health-e-NC (H-e-NC) pilot projects will employ a team science approach to mobilize UNC experts to collaborate on research proposals that focus on key priority areas (obesity, diet and physical activity; tobacco use prevention and control; organizational system/settings; and health care providers and practice networks), located in North Carolina anchor counties that have the greatest cancer burden.

The deadline for the next round has not been set. Six-weeks-notice will be provided between the announcement and deadline.
