Bladder Cancer Career Development Award

BCAN’s New Career Development Award

BCAN recognizes the critical need to support junior investigators who have yet to secure their first major research funding but aim to establish an independent bladder cancer research program and successful career path.

To meet this need, BCAN is pleased to offer the Career Development Award (CDA).

Who will the CDA support?

Junior investigators (must have doctoral degree) who are within the initial 7 years of their first full-time faculty appointment with the title of assistant professor, instructor, research assistant professor, or equivalent, and who have not yet received a major independent research award (NIH R01 or equivalent).

What is the scope of the award?

The CDA is a three-year grant totaling $250,000 that will support translational, clinical or epidemiological research that has direct applicability and relevance to bladder cancer. Projects must demonstrate the likelihood of translating new concepts into clinical practice.
