Call for Team Science Grant (TSG) Applications 2019
TSG Award Goals and Scope
The Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU (SCI) is seeking to fund proposals led by clinician-basic scientist teams that focus on translational cancer research. The main objective of the awards is to stimulate novel research programs that complement the SCI Cancer Research mission. Clinicians will be required to play an active role in the proposed research. It is envisioned that a clinician and a basic scientist, both with major interest in cancer research, will pair to create a TEAM leading an innovative research project that is TRANSLATIONAL in nature. Research results obtained through this award are expected to be published in peer-reviewed journals and used as preliminary data in competing for extramural funding. Successful recipients of the TSG awards are expected to become nationally recognized leaders of innovative translational cancer research that leads to improved cancer patient care.
