Florida Academic Cancer Center Alliance (FACCA) Funding Opportunity

Goals and Purpose

The Florida Academic Cancer Center Alliance (FACCA) invites investigators to apply for pilot funding for collaborative projects. Projects must involve Co-Principal Investigators from at least 2 of the 3 Florida Cancer Centers (Moffitt Cancer Center, UF Health Cancer Center, and Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center). These pilots should ultimately result in collaborative extramural grant applications/awards and/or clinical research studies. Projects are specifically encouraged in pediatric cancer, or pediatric-related cancer.

Description of Award Mechanisms

Faculty members are limited to only one application submission as Co-Principal Investigator per cycle. However, faculty members may be listed as co-investigators and collaborators on additional applications.

Budgets are $50,000/collaborating center per project. Thus, a collaborative project with two centers will be funded in total for $100,000, or for all three centers at $150,000. Awards will be made for a term of twelve months, during which time all funds should be expended. This opportunity is open to all Faculty ranks (Assistant, Associate, or full Professor, or Assistant, Associate, or Senior Member.)

Competing Renewal: If you are submitting your project as a competing renewal, please submit an additional one-page document describing the progress made during the past funding period. List peer reviewed publications and grants obtained or pending as a result of the support from FACCA. 

For these proposals, a letter of intent is required, but non-binding. A letter of intent that does not result in a full proposal will not penalize either the investigator(s) or institution(s), but will assist with the construction of the special emphasis review panel.

Eligibility

Projects must involve Co-Principal Investigators from at least 2 of the 3 Florida Cancer Centers (Moffitt Cancer Center, UF Health Cancer Center, and Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center).
