At the Harvard T.H. Chan Center for Global Cancer Prevention, we are dedicated to investing in resources that will train the next generation of prevention and early detection researchers. We believe in bringing together institutions to form a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional group to discuss problems, develop collaborations, and to identify priorities for research across the field of cancer prevention and early detection.

Zhu Center Training Grants and Awards
Zhu Center PEER Award Prevention and Early Detection for Emerging Researchers (PEER) Awards are designed to encourage and support the scientific career development of Harvard Chan School Assistant and Associate Professors on the tenure ladder. To advance this goal, we will solicit proposals for pilot projects that will provide faculty the opportunity to develop their research ideas, collect pilot data, or conduct secondary data analysis to be used as pilot data. Although not required, we are particularly interested in proposals that are interdisciplinary in nature. The award is intended to maximize faculty competitiveness for extramural funding by allowing faculty to develop innovative and novel ideas/methods. Meet our awardees.>

Other Opportunities and Partnerships
The Beginning Investigator Grant for Catalytic (BIG CAT) Research, a collaboration between AORTIC and NCI, is intended to support exploratory data collection by African scientists engaged in cancer research in Africa. The BIG Cat funding is not intended to support longer term research but to catalyze subsequent application for funding from NCI and/or other sources. The grants are not intended for principal investigators outside of Africa, although collaborative research projects are encouraged. All funds provided must be spent in Africa. Research proposals are encouraged that span the cancer continuum (descriptive epidemiology, prevention, detection, diagnosis, and treatment including supportive and palliative care and behavioral research).

OneBoston The Zhu Family Center for Global Cancer Prevention, in partnership with leaders from MIT and BU, have brought together a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional group to discuss problems and develop collaborations regarding early detection and cancer prevention. This group is focused on discussing the work of each institution and identifying priorities for research and possible partnership.
