CDMRP Ovarian Cancer Pilot Award
The OCRP Pilot Award supports the exploration of innovative concepts or theories in ovarian cancer that could ultimately lead to critical discoveries or major advancements that will drive the field forward. The proposed research must demonstrate a clear focus on ovarian cancer (e.g., using tissues, cell lines, datasets, or appropriate animal models), and serve as a catalyst to expand or modify current thinking about and/or approaches in ovarian cancer. If cell lines or animals are to be used, a clear justification should be provided for the choice of proposed cell line(s) or animal model(s).To foster research with potential to yield new avenues of investigation, preliminary data are not required, but are allowed. Research projects should include a well-formulated, testable hypothesis based on strong scientific rationale; however, applications that demonstrate exceptional scientific merit but lack innovation do not meet the intent of the Pilot Award. The outcome of research supported...
