Announcing BCAN 2019 Young Investigator Awards

The Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network (BCAN) is pleased to announce two 2019 Young Investigator Awards *(YIA), to support the development of outstanding early career research scientists and clinical cancer research investigators who have demonstrated a commitment to improving the understanding and treatment of bladder cancer.
In addition, BCAN is designating an additional YIA for Patient-Centered Clinical Research*.  To compete for this award, investigators must be working in a research environment capable of supporting transformational patient-oriented clinical bladder cancer research (e.g. studies of access to care, quality of care, quality of life, health disparities, and patient-centered outcomes research).

“Supporting early career investigators with the YIA and Patient-Centered Clinical Research YIA has been a priority since the beginning of BCAN,” notes Andrea Maddox-Smith, Chief Executive Officer of BCAN. “It is a core part BCAN’s mission to support the science that makes a difference in the lives of patients and their families.”

These awards provide $50,000 to support one year of research. Interested applicants must submit a Research Proposal by 5:00 PM (EST) on Monday, February 25, 2019. Please view the full 2019 award guidelines for eligibility, and application requirements available through the links below:

*To submit, the applicant must be within six years following completion of a professional degree such as MD, PhD, MD-PhD, MPH, or equivalent or clinical training such as residency or fellowship.
