Call for Applications – Gut Cancer Research Funding Round. Applications must be received by GCF by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 pm, Friday 29th September 202
The Gut Cancer Foundation (GCF) is calling for applications for:
A clinical trial, clinical study, or pre-clinical research which aims to improve outcomes for patients with gastro-intestinal (GI) cancers in New Zealand. The value of the grant is $150,000 (GST excl).
GCF will consider both new research or existing projects with preference given to those applications most closely aligned with GCF’s strategic aims and current research priorities:
Improving access for New Zealanders to clinical trials
Supporting NZ clinicians to combine their clinical work with research projects
The development of a dedicated clinical research workforce for upper and lower GI cancers with a focus on increasing Māori participation
Supporting research and trials that increases equitable outcomes and access for Māori, and other underserved populations in Aotearoa New Zealand
GCF will consider applications from all relevant health professions, who are able to combine their clinical work with research, investigating how to improve detection, diagnosis, the quality of life and potential survival for people living with GI cancer in Aotearoa New Zealand. GCF will consider applications from pre-clinical researchers that clearly define a short-term pathway to clinical trials.
The Gut Cancer Research Funding Round is available in (but not limited to) the specialty areas of cancer surgery, radiation oncology, medical oncology, palliative care, cancer genetics, radiology, anatomical pathology, nutrition, nursing, psychiatry, or public health.
For clinical trials and clinical studies, awards will be distributed on a patient-by-patient basis. Successful recipients will be expected to invoice for each patient recruited to the trial.
Awards to pre-clinical research projects will be distributed through 3 payments of $50,000. The 2nd and 3rd payments will be conditional on the satisfactory receipt of a 6 monthly review.
Six monthly progress reports are required using the provided accountability template. The report will be reviewed by GCF’s Scientific Advisory Committee who will advise the GCF board on the distribution of future payments.
All recipients would be expected and required to acknowledge funding support from GCF in oral or written reports about their work. The successful applicant must be prepared to have a profile posted on GCF’s website www.gutcancer.org.nz and promoted through GCF’s marketing material.
Applications should be made on the Research Proposal form attached and need to include the proposed research, and information about the applicant, description of how their time will be allocated, and demonstration of value to their career.
Applications must be received by GCF by email to email@example.com by 5 pm, Friday 29th September 2023. Please note that your host institution may have an earlier closing date and GCF strongly encourages you to adhere to the internal deadline. Please also ensure that you also fulfil any institutional requirements for submission.
