The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s research investment for 2016 will be $9.7 million, representing a more than 40 percent increase over last year’s investment. Of this total, $6.8 million will be awarded through our competitive Research Grants Program.

We are offering six different types of research grant mechanisms and a travel scholarship. Collectively, these awards target applicants at all stages of their career and support projects all along the research continuum – basic, translational and clinical investigations. Two of the early-career awards, the Pathway to Leadership Grant and the Career Development Award, will continue to be administered in partnership with the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR). All other awards will be self-administered by the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

All applications are submitted online using proposalCENTRAL. Click on the opportunities below to learn more and apply.
