Lung Cancer Research Foundation (LCRF) and Pfizer Global Medical Grants (GMG)
Grants to USA postdoctoral investigators at nonprofit institutions for projects to improve the treatment of patients with lung cancer. A letter of intent must be submitted prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended for innovative research projects that will significantly impact the management of side effects related to lung cancer therapies.
The Lung Cancer Research Foundation and Pfizer Global Medical Grants are collaborating to offer a new research grant opportunity focused on understanding ways to improve clinical practices for side effect management for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients receiving targeted therapies. This collaborative funding mechanism is designed to support innovative health services research proposals that leverage multidisciplinary approaches to improve the management of targeted therapy toxicities.
Proposals on a variety of topics including the following are encouraged:
- Patterns of use and comparisons of real-world versus pre-approval patient experiences
- Defining and understanding tolerability (including late toxicities and patient-reported outcomes)
- Role of diverse, multi-disciplinary teams (including pharmacists, dieticians, caregivers, etc.) and coordination of care in managing and monitoring therapy
- Real-time symptom monitoring and implementation science approaches to improving care delivery
Approaches to management of toxicities in NSCLC patients treated with tyrosine kinase inhibitors, including but not limited to ALK, ROS1, and/or EGFR inhibitors, fall within the scope of this project.
Projects incorporating mixed-practice settings through collaborations such as in the NCI's Community Oncology Research Program, the SIMPRO Research Center, and other quality-of-care alliances are also encouraged.
In addition, the following costs are permitted:
- Overhead/indirect/F&A costs not exceeding 15% of the total*
- Publication expenses
