The American Cancer Society (ACS) and the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) have partnered to co-fund one Clinician Scientist Development Grant (CSDG). The goal of the ASTRO-ACS CSDG is to foster the research career of a clinician scientist in radiation oncology.
The investigator selected for funding will be required to become a member of ASTRO prior to grant activation.
The Clinician Scientist Development Grant (CSDG) supports junior faculty members in becoming independent investigators as clinician scientists. This grant is designed for people trained primarily as clinicians who want to maintain clinical practice and conduct cancer research. Specifically for this RFA in partnership with ASTRO, the applicant must be in the radiation oncology field.
Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply.
You ARE eligible to submit a proposal if you:
Awards may be for 3 to 5 years (depending on the amount of mentored post-doctoral research training the applicant has had) with $135,000 a year for direct costs, plus 8% allowable indirect costs.
