Request for Applications: Energy Balance Supplemental Funding
Application Deadline: April 15, 2024
The Center for Energy Balance in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship (EB) encourages collaborative, trans-disciplinary research on energy balance and cancer. Energy balance research integrates the effects of diet, physical activity and genetics on the development and progression of cancer and on cancer patients’ quality of life. At MD Anderson, we have core shared resources that provide services and support of fitness, body composition, physical activity and dietary intake in studies with humans. However, these resources operate on a fee-for-service basis, and the cost of including these services is often too high to include in pilot tests funded by seed money grants or start-up funds.
EB offers funding (up to $10,000/project) to support specific services and support, administered through any MD Anderson cores and shared resources, included in pilot tests which generate preliminary data for a larger application. Preference will be given to projects with an approved IRB protocol already in place.
