CDMRP Ovarian Cancer, Ovarian Cancer Academy Award
The OCA is a virtual career development and research training platform that consists of Early-Career Investigators (ECIs), and their Designated Mentors from different institutions, and an Academy Dean and Assistant Dean. This FY21 Program Announcement/Funding Opportunity is soliciting additional ECIs to join the existing Academy. This award mechanism enables the ECI (the investigator named as the Principal Investigator [PI] on the application) to pursue an ovarian cancer project that may be basic, translational, and/or clinical research, or a clinical trial under the guidance of a Designated Mentor. The Designated Mentor is not required to be at the same institution as the ECI. New for FY21 is the ECI eligibility: Must be within five (5) years of last postdoctoral research position (Ph.D.) or clinical fellowship (M.D.), or equivalent as of the full application submission deadline.
