Request for Applications
Funding Opportunity Overview
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has affected healthcare and cancer research. Therefore, the Center for Immunotherapeutic Transport Oncophysics (CITO) is releasing a call for COVID-19 Special Projects to identify and understand the multi-scale transport properties of immune cells and molecules (systemically and within the tumor microenvironment) and other biophysical properties of the tumor microenvironment attributed by COVID-19. This award mechanism is supported by the Education and Outreach Unit, which serves as the education and training platform for the collaborative engagement of CITO.
In this Request for Applications (RFA), applications are being solicited in the area of COVID-19 as it pertains to transport oncophysics, in the context of cancer immunology and immunotherapy. Applications may address any particular challenge and must complement or synergize with the current CITO Projects. This special project is intended as an additional mechanism for members of the CITO to innovate and collaborate in other fields.
Applications due on a rolling basis until June 1, 2020.
A successful application will be awarded up to $30,000 (direct costs) for supplies and core services for up to one year. No cost sharing or matching is available or required. Once selected for funding, the project’s lead investigator(s) must submit an annual progress report and may be requested to present on their research, as needed.
Budget: up to $30,000 (direct costs)
Applications must be electronically submitted to email@example.com.
