Applications Requested for Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) Convergence Grants Exploring Cancer’s Communications among the Immune System and the Microbiome Using Organoids and Mice.
Goal: develop a set of experimental platforms using organoid systems in vitro, and mouse models, that will permit a detailed exploration and understanding of the interactions and chemical communications among the cancerous/normal organoid, the immune system, and the microbiome.
Convergence 3.1416 aims to bring together research laboratories with complementary skill sets and technological approaches:
Applications: A letter of intent describing current research directions, capabilities, and a list of recent publications, information about present position, institution, and laboratory size and scope. Current funding should be included, as well as any conflicts of interest. Please submit your applications to StandUpToCancer.org/Convergence by June 1, 2020.
Notification: Applications will be screened by a committee, and it is anticipated that 10-15 investigators will be invited to a three day ideas laboratory to be held at the Institute for Advanced Study, in Princeton, New Jersey, at which invited investigators will give a short talk about their work and capabilities, and break up into groups to determine if collaborative efforts can be planned. Following this meeting, a subset of the group will be selected to write proposals of no more than 10 pages, and supply a budget for a three to four year grant period. The review committee will recommend which proposals are acceptable for funding.
