The Stand Up To Cancer Canada Metastatic Breast Cancer Dream Team, supported by Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) and Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), represents a new, focused effort to implement advances in metastatic breast cancer research as rapidly as possible through the creation of a collaborative, translational, cancer research "Metastatic Breast Cancer Dream Team". The most talented and promising researchers across Canadian institutions will be assembled into a pan-Canadian Dream Team, forming an optimal configuration of expertise needed to solve key problems in metastatic breast cancer and positively impact patients in the near future. This Metastatic Breast Cancer Dream Team will span multiple disciplines and utilize the new tools of modern biology to attack research questions in a coordinated way. Mechanisms to foster collaborations within the Dream Team will be employed – an approach that promotes the sharing of information and a goal-oriented focus on measurable milestones of progress. SU2C Canada, CCS and CIHR believe that this unique Metastatic Breast Cancer Dream Team model will advance scientific research in the interests of both today's cancer patients and those who may develop cancer in the future.
Total funds up to $6 million CAD are available from the funders; please see the Program Guidelines for further details. This grant offers funding for a 4-year research term, depending upon project requirements, and will be contingent on the SU2C Canada Scientific Advisory Committee (CSAC) and the Canada Metastatic Breast Cancer Subcommittee (CMBCS) finding that the funds are justified and that milestones and deliverables have been appropriately selected and are being satisfactorily pursued and achieved. The funds must be used for research at Canadian institutions.
This research funding opportunity is in support of one integrated and cohesive pan-Canadian Dream Team that will undertake Metastatic Breast Cancer research. The research should focus on critical problems in Metastatic Breast Cancer.
In particular, the applicants must:
