Grant to a USA individual investigator to conduct cancer research. Funding is intended for research that has the potential to impact health outcomes, particularly in younger patients. The goal of the program is to support basic, translational, and epidemiological research related specifically to health disparities in colorectal cancer. An eligible proposal must demonstrate substantial potential for impact on prevention/early detection or treatment of young-onset colorectal cancer survivor population.

Focus could be, but is not limited to, one or all of the following areas:

  • The risk factors and causes associated with the rise in young-onset colorectal cancer including but not limited to changes in the microbiome and its impact on young-onset colorectal cancer.
  • Cellular, genomic, and epigenomic mechanisms in young-onset colorectal cancer for improving early detection and improving treatments.
  • Better mechanisms for increasing the long-term survival rates of those with young-onset colorectal cancer.
  • The psychosocial impacts of young-onset colorectal cancer and the overall social influence on daily survivorship.

Examples of such projects include, but are not limited to:

  • Research that leads to improvement in early detection and intervention of colorectal cancer in young-onset populations.
  • Research that leads to a better understanding of the risk factors and causes associated with the rise in young-onset colorectal cancer thus enabling diagnosis at earlier and more treatable stages with an increased survival rate.
  • Research that leads to better treatment mechanisms for those living with young-onset colorectal cancer thus increasing the long-term survival rates for those living with the disease.
  • Research that leads to a better understanding of the psychosocial impacts associated with young-onset colorectal cancer and its influence on both short-term and long-term survivorship and daily life.

No more than 25% of the PI’s salary can be allotted to the budget. A partial amount of funds may be designated for non-personnel expenses, such as research/laboratory supplies, equipment, publication charges for manuscripts that pertain directly to the funded project, and other research expenses.
