The Breast Cancer Research Foundation-AACR Career Development Awards to Promote Diversity and Inclusion represent a focused effort to encourage and support investigators from diverse backgrounds that are underrepresented in cancer research and to foster their career advancement. This grants program also intends to build a more diverse and inclusive future for breast cancer research. Eligibility is limited to members of racial or ethnic groups that have been shown to be traditionally excluded in the cancer related sciences workforce. Selection is competitive and will be based on outstanding accomplishments both in scientific research and in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion within the cancer research community.
Proposed projects must be basic, translational, clinical, epidemiological, population health, and/or community-based cancer research projects designed to accelerate the discovery, development, and application of new agents to treat breast cancer. Research that aims to advance the science of understanding cancer health disparities in racial and ethnic minorities that has relevance to breast cancer will also be considered.
