Take on Cancer's Toughest Challenges with These 3 Data Science-Oriented Funding Opportunities

Are you ready to tackle some of the most challenging issues in cancer research?

If so, submit your expression of interest to help a global community of diverse, world-class research teams take on some of the biggest questions involving the disease. Cancer Grand Challenges, founded by NCI and Cancer Research UK in 2020, announced nine new research challenges to transform how we prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer.

Three of the nine challenges involve pursuing how data science can advance cancer research:

  • The cancer inequities challenge requires diverse data, data collection, infrastructures, and transdisciplinary methods to address cancer inequities. 
  • The early-onset cancers challenge focuses on how using data and samples from existing cohorts allows us to understand why early-onset cancer in adults is rising.
  • The obesity, physical activity, and cancer risk challenge seeks to discover how animal models, data science, artificial intelligence, and other tools could advance discovery and identify interventions that can be translated into humans.

If one of these challenges interests you, complete a pre-submission questionnaire by June 15, 2023, and submit your expression of interest by June 22, 2023.

If chosen to be a part of the shortlisted teams, the Cancer Grand Challenges Scientific Committee will award you more than $30,000 to build your full application.
