Research Funding


The research proposed for funding may be in any area of basic cancer research.


The AACR Anna D. Barker Basic Cancer Research Fellowship encourages and supports postdoctoral or clinical research fellows to establish a successful career path in cancer research.\r\n\r\nThis fellowship provides $110,000 over a two-year period to support the salary and benefits of the fellow while working on a mentored basic cancer research project. 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.




The AACR is committed to the development of the next generation of cancer researchers. Together with our funding partners, we provide research training and fellowship support to postdoctoral and clinical research fellows as they embark on projects under the auspices of a mentor — laying the groundwork for successful and impactful careers in cancer research.\r\n\r\n\r\n

Funding opportunities(Covid – 19 specific funding opportunities)

UK Aid Direct Small Charities Challenge Fund

25 February 2021

Type of project: SCCF welcomes applications for projects working towards addressing the Global Goals to improve the lives of the most vulnerable and marginalised. It will be prioritising applications that can demonstrate that they are responding to longer term impacts of COVID-19. The fund remains open for applications addressing a wide range of Global Goals in a variety of contexts. However, we will expect all applicants to be able to explain: how their project will address anticipated longer term impacts of the virus and outline how the risks of COVID-19 to project delivery could be mitigated as part of their application. We appreciate the crisis is developing rapidly and that accurately predicting how COVID-19 will impact the specific context you work in will be challenging.
