NCI Director’s Intramural Innovation Award Program

The NCI Director’s Intramural Innovation Award Program is designed to support development of highly innovative approaches and technology aimed at significant cancer-related problems. Novel proposals with the potential for high impact, the potential to generate new intellectual property or technology, or which are considered too high-risk or preliminary to pursue within the base budget allocation are encouraged. Proposals with an emphasis on health disparities research are also encouraged. The program offers one-time awards at two levels: Principal Investigator (PI) Awards are targeted to tenure-track PIs, recently tenured PIs (within 5 years of tenure), and CCR Senior Scientists/Clinicians, with an upper limit of $50,000; Career Development Awards are targeted to Postdoctoral Fellows, Staff Scientists, and Staff Clinicians at all levels, with an upper limit of $10,000.

The next round of innovation award submission is tentatively scheduled to open during the summer of 2013.
At that time, all CCR staff members will receive an e-mail notice with detailed instructions from Dr. Janelle Cortner.
