Exploration - Hypothesis Development Award - Prostate Cancer Research Program
The Exploration - Hypothesis Development Award supports the exploration of highly innovative, untested, potentially high-gain concepts, theories, paradigms, and/or methods that address an important problem in prostate cancer. Results of studies conducted through this award may provide the scientific rationale upon which a new hypothesis can be based or initial proof-of-principle of an innovative hypothesis. This award is designed to provide investigators the opportunity to pursue serendipitous observations that may reveal entirely new avenues for investigation. Presentation of preliminary data is inconsistent with the intent of this award mechanism and is therefore strongly discouraged. However, logical reasoning and a sound scientific rationale for the proposed work must be described.
DEADLINES: LOI: June 6; Full proposal: June 20, 2012
