Purpose: The Sol Goldman Pancreatic Cancer Research Center at Johns Hopkins is pleased to announce that funding is available for a limited number of novel developmental research programs (pilot projects) in the study of adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. This program funds important new pilot projects with promising translational potential that do not have sufficient data for an independently funded NIH grant. Projects of high priority should focus on new research directions, explore innovative ideas, test unconventional, but potentially important, new hypotheses, or ascertain the feasibility of new research approaches.
Eligibility: Applicants must hold an M.D. or Ph.D. degree or both and must have a current academic appointment at Johns Hopkins University.
Funding: $50,000 per year with the option of re-applying for a second year of funding may be requested for the salaries of faculty, postdoctoral fellows or technicians, for equipment, and/or for consumable supplies.
