The Dana-Farber/Novartis Drug Discovery and Translational Research Program (DDTRP) is pleased to announce a competition for three-year Grants with funding to begin in July 2021. The Program integrates leading academic research and Novartis scientific
drug discovery and development efforts to advance better oncology therapeutics to improve patient outcomes.
Thus, while excellent science is required for funding, the prospect that a project might yield information useful in drug discovery and clinical application is also necessary. Novartis encourages participation from all Boston academic medical institutions
associated with the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center (DF/HCC — including BIDMC, BCH, BWH, DFCI, MGH, HMS, HSPH), whether or not the primary applicant is a DF/HCC member.
Please request the RFA to review the full details of this round's Grants, including application process, topics of interest, and eligibility criteria.
