The LCFA/IASLC Lori Monroe Scholarship in Translational Lung Cancer Research

2 lung cancer research grants

$200,000 over 2 years

The International Association for the Study or Lung Cancer (IASLC) and the Lung Cancer Foundation of America (LCFA) are proud to announce a Request for Application for the LCFA/IASLC Lori Monroe Scholarship in Translational Lung Cancer Research. The scholarship will fund two lung cancer research grants over two years. Each grant recipient will receive $200,000.

Applications in the following research areas will be given priority:

  1. Facilitate the collaboration, information-sharing and interaction between basic researchers and clinical investigators with the goal of expediting and translating results of scientific investigation into clinical practice to reduce the lung cancer burden; or
  2. Explore innovative models of lung cancer care delivery; or
  3. Explore the etiologies of lung cancer in the never smoker population.

The objective of this Award is to support research that improves the care of individuals with lung cancers and to reduce the burden of these diseases.

Examples include studies designed to define the molecular basis of lung cancer risk assessment, improved molecular diagnostic studies designed to detect the disease early and guide curative-intent therapy, or predictive features guiding the use of targeted or immune oncology therapy to reduce recurrence after standard curative-intent strategies in early stage disease, or to improve the outcomes or cure patients with metastatic lung cancer. Likewise, studies designed to facilitate care by minimizing treatment side effects or illuminating the causes of nonsmoking related lung cancer are encouraged.
