Canadian Institutes of Health Research Team Grant : Terry Fox New Frontiers Program in Cancer (2012-2013)
The objective of the Terry Fox New Frontiers Program Project (Terry Fox New Frontiers) Grant funding opportunity is to support Canadian research programs in cancer that explore new frontiers in cure-oriented research (i.e., breakthrough and transformative biomedical/translational research providing new knowledge which may form the basis for innovative cancer diagnosis and/or treatment).
Eligible Terry Fox New Frontiers applicants will be made up of at least three independent investigators, one of which will be identified as the Nominated Principal Applicant/Program Coordinator and the others as Principal Applicants. The projects that make up the research program must represent scientific input from all Principal Applicants, must be able to stand as independently-fundable research projects, but at the same time, must contribute substantially to the primary research goal.
· For groups that do not hold a Terry Fox New Frontiers Program Project grant – for which the application is for a new subject and not a renewal of an existing award – the maximum amount per grant that can be applied for is up to $750,000 per year for up to three years.
· For groups applying for renewal of their Terry Fox New Frontiers grant the maximum amount per grant that can be applied for is up to $1,500,000 per year for either three, four or five years.
· The equipment amount, where applicable, is awarded in year one.
