Diana Benz Seed Grants
The Diana Benz Memorial Fund supports a cancer research seed grant up to $20,000 for a project related to psychosocial issues, complementary and alternative medicine, and other aspects of cancer research with a focus on quality of life for cancer patients and survivors. Any faculty or staff member at the University of Iowa is eligible to apply. The project to be supported will be selected by a peer-review process of all applications submitted to the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Junior Faculty Seed Grants
This announcement invites applications from junior faculty members from all departments and colleges of the University of Iowa. This is a one-year, cancer-focused research award supported through the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center’s American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grant (ACS-IRG). The purpose of these seed grant awards is to foster research in cancer that cannot readily be supported through other available sources, and to permit the initiation of promising new projects or novel ideas necessary to obtain preliminary results for junior faculty to successfully compete for national research grants. These grants are intended to support independent, self-directed investigators early in their careers, for whom the institution provides the research facilities, the resources and space customary for an independent investigator.
