Grants to USA, Canada, and International early-stage researchers affiliated with nonprofit institutions to promote diversity and professional development. Funding is intended to help minority investigators overcome obstacles related to race, country of origin, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and/or language, and to address the lack of diversity in STEM and medical fields. The goal of the program is to provide protected time and mentoring to early-career minority postdoctoral/clinical fellows and assistant professors. This program aims to close the gap between the mortality rates and representation in lung cancer research.

The newly launched LCRF Minority Career Development Award (CDA) for Lung Cancer is a two-year career development award intended to support early-stage scientists from underrepresented groups working in lung cancer and working in diverse areas of research including basic, clinical, translational, disparities, and social determinants of health research. The objective of this award is to increase the number of highly skilled and trained researchers from groups that are historically underrepresented in academia, medicine, and leadership in lung cancer research. 

Applications are encouraged on a wide variety of topics including but not limited to the following:

  • Lung cancer biology
  • Prevention and screening for early detection
  • Identification of new biomarkers
  • Development of more effective and less toxic therapies including but not limited to targeted and immune-therapies
  • Genetic and gene-environment interactions
  • Interactions and contributions of multiple factors (e.g. smoking, genetics, environment, societal factors) to disparities in lung cancer outcomes
  • Mechanisms of sensitivity and resistance to lung cancer therapies
  • Bioengineering approaches to understanding and/or treating lung cancer (i.e., theranostics, biomaterials, nanotechnology, controlled-drug release, and gene therapy)
  • Supportive measures for people with lung cancer and their families.
