2018 Research Fellowships and Bridge Funding

The NJCCR announces the availability of Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 funds to support research fellowships and bridge funding.

The Research Fellowships will support pre and post‐doctoral fellows who will conduct original basic, biomedical, behavioral or clinical science research related to the causes, prevention, survival and treatment of cancer.

The NJCCR Bridge Award Program is designed to enhance cancer‐related research at New Jersey institutions by providing funding to promising and productive investigators who anticipate a short‐term interruption in funding for research projects focused on cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.
