Damon Runyon Dale F. Frey Award for Breakthrough Scientists

Program Description

The Damon Runyon Fellowship identifies the nation’s top postdoctoral fellows and provides funding that enables them to complete their training under the mentorship of a leading senior scientist and encourages them to follow their own bold ideas.  At the end of the Fellowship, there are often a select few who have greatly exceeded the Foundation’s highest expectations.  These spectacular young scientists are the most likely to make paradigm-shifting breakthroughs that transform the way we prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.  To catapult their research careers—and their impact on cancer—the Foundation will make an additional investment in these exceptional individuals by selecting them as recipients of the Damon Runyon Dale F. Frey Award for Breakthrough Scientists.

In doing so, the Foundation will:

  • provide additional financial support to enable these scientists to continue the pursuit of bold and innovative ideas
  • accelerate the path to independence
  • encourage a continued career in cancer research

Selection Criteria

  • Exceptional productivity and significant accomplishments during the Damon Runyon Fellowship
  • Potential of the applicant to become a leader in the field of cancer research
  • Potential of the research to impact the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of one or more forms of cancer

All Damon Runyon Dale F. Frey Awards are approved by the Board of Directors of the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation acting upon the recommendation of the Fellowship Award Committee (FAC).

This award was created to honor Dale F. Frey, retired Chairman of the Damon Runyon Board of Directors, in recognition of his sixteen years of visionary leadership.

For Scientists

The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation is a non-profit organization with the mission of identifying and supporting exceptional early career researchers. Our scientists are committed to discovery leading to new understanding of the cell and how it becomes cancerous, as well as innovative approaches to the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of all forms of this disease. Our awards target postdoctoral fellows conducting basic research, early career clinical investigators conducting translational clinical research, and young innovators with high-risk/high-reward ideas.

Fellowship Award

Supports the training of the brightest postdoctoral scientists as they embark upon their research careers. This funding enables them to be trained by established investigators in leading research laboratories across the country.

Clinical Investigator Award

Supports early career physician-scientists conducting patient-oriented research. The goal of this program is to increase the number of physicians capable of moving seamlessly between the laboratory and the patient’s bedside in search of breakthrough treatments.

Damon Runyon Clinical Investigators are eligible to apply for Continuation Grants in the final year of their award.

Innovation Award

Supports the next generation of exceptionally creative thinkers with “high risk/high reward” ideas that have the potential to significantly impact our understanding of and/or approaches to the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of cancer but lack sufficient preliminary data to obtain traditional funding.

Program Description

The Damon Runyon-Rachleff Innovation Award is designed to provide support for the next generation of exceptionally creative thinkers with “high-risk/high-reward” ideas that have the potential to significantly impact our understanding of and/or approaches to the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of cancer.

The Innovation Award is specifically designed to provide funding to extraordinary early career researchers who have an innovative new idea but lack sufficient preliminary data to obtain traditional funding. It is not designed to fund incremental advances. The research supported by the award must be novel, exceptionally creative and, if successful, have the strong potential for high impact in the cancer field.

Awards are made to institutions for support of the Damon Runyon-Rachleff Innovation Investigators. All awards are approved by the Board of Directors of the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation acting upon the recommendation of the Innovation Award Committee.

Applications will be evaluated based on the following:

  • The applicant’s capacity to conduct bold, exceptionally creative research.
  • The novelty and creativity of the proposed research.  Incremental research will not be funded.
  • The potential of the proposed research to lead to advances that will significantly impact the prevention, diagnosis, treatment or basic understanding of cancer.
  • The applicant’s lack of resources to pursue the proposed research.

Program Sponsors

The Damon Runyon-Rachleff Innovation Award is funded by the generous support of Andrew and Debra Rachleff.

Eligibility

  • Institutional nominations are not required and there is no limit to the number of applications that can be received from a particular institution.
  • Applicants (including non-U.S. citizens) must be conducting independent research at a U.S. research institution.
  • Basic and translational/clinical projects will be considered.  Applications will be accepted from all scientific disciplines provided that the proposed research meets the selection criteria.
  • Applicants with a background in multiple disciplines are especially encouraged to apply.
  • Joint submission from collaborators working in different disciplines will be considered. (The collaborators will share the award.) Each collaborator must meet the eligibility criteria.
  • Applicants must belong to one of the following categories:
    • Tenure-track Assistant Professors within the first four years of obtaining their initial Assistant Professor position. (Cut-off date: July 1, 2010.)
    • Clinical Instructors and Senior Clinical Fellows (in the final year of their sub-specialty training) holding an MD who are pursuing a period of independent research before taking a tenure-track faculty position.  Such individuals must have an exceptional record of research accomplishment, dedicated laboratory space and the support of their institution.
    • Distinguished Fellows with an exceptional record of research accomplishment identified by their institution to pursue an independent research program and who have dedicated laboratory space.  These candidates are markedly distinct from traditional postdoctoral fellows.  Examples: Whitehead Fellows, UCSF Fellows, Cold Spring Harbor Fellows.
      [Research Assistant Professors, Research Associate Professors, Research Scientists and Postdoctoral Fellows are not eligible.  If you are unsure about your eligibility for this award program, please contact the Foundation's Award Programs at 212.455.0520.]

  • Applicants are expected to commit a minimum of 80% of their time to conducting research.
  • Applicants may apply no more than two times.
  • Applicants must demonstrate that they have access to the resources and infrastructure necessary to conduct the proposed research.
  • The department must guarantee the Investigator is conducting the proposed research independently.

Funding

  • The initial award will be for two years, $150,000 per year ($300,000 total) with the opportunity for up to two additional years of funding (up to four years total for $600,000). Continued support for years three and four will be granted to those awardees who demonstrate significant progress on their proposed research during years one and two of the award. Applicants will provide a written update on their research and present their progress in person to the committee shortly before the end of the second year of the award, at which time the committee will make a decision regarding continued funding.
  • The Award cannot be used for indirect costs or institutional overhead.
  • Awards will be paid in increments of $150,000 per year for the term of the award.  However, the Innovation Award Committee will consider an accelerated payment schedule if an award recipient can demonstrate compelling need.
  • The Innovation Award funds are intended to be flexible and can be used for a variety of scientific needs including the Investigator’s salary, salaries for professional and technical personnel, special equipment, supplies and other miscellaneous items required to conduct the proposed research.
  • No part of this award may be used for indirect costs or institutional overhead.

Concurrent Funding

Since the goal of the Innovation Award is to fund high-risk/high-reward research that lacks sufficient preliminary data to secure traditional funding, the applicant should not have funding for this proposed project.

During the course of the award, award recipients are encouraged to seek additional funding to expand and further develop their projects.

Reporting

SCIENTIFIC

Award recipients will be required to submit annual progress reports after each year of funding, as well as a final report. Award recipients will also be required to present to the Innovation Award Committee near the end of the second year of the Award so that the Committee can assess progress,provide advice and/or guidance, and make a decision regarding continued funding for years three and four.

Progress Report Instructions
The Investigator must submit signed annual progress reports due on the 15th day of the final month of each year of funding and a signed final progress report at the completion of the award. In addition to written reports, the Investigator will present an oral progress report during the fall of the second year.

All reports are kept strictly confidential. The goal of the reports is three-fold. First, the reports serve as an auditing tool to monitor research progress and assure that the research is on target with the funded project. Second, the reports allow the Foundation to perform regular program evaluations including issues related to areas of study, concurrent funding, networking opportunities, career development and award impact. Third, the reports provide an opportunity to identify specific part(s) of the Investigator’s research (e.g., fundamental advance, clinical trial development, patient-related anecdote, publications) that the Foundation may highlight in various media outlets. In fact, we would appreciate Investigators contacting the Award Programs at any time to share such information.

The Investigator’s annual progress report includes:

  1. A summary of research performed during the award year and evaluation of the results. The summary should be technical, but targeted to a general scientific audience. The summary should be sufficiently detailed such that the Investigator’s research activities over the award year are clearly described. Figures and references can be included if appropriate. If the research differs from the originally funded proposal, please provide an explanation. The report must be signed by the Investigator and should not exceed four pages.
  2. A one-paragraph lay summary, for the public, detailing the research performed over the award year.
  3. An up-to-date curriculum vitae including:
  4. a. A bibliography of publications from the award year (please submit pdf copies of reprints).
    b. An updated list of current and pending funding.
    c. A list of conferences and seminars attended and presentations given during the award year.
    d. Changes in the Investigator’s responsibilities or title (tenure/promotion, leadership positions, consultant work, etc.).

  5. Brief comments on the most important accomplishment over the past year. Also, please address any issues or concerns regarding obstacles to your success to which the Foundation might respond.
  6. A brief description of the Investigator’s current research and office space allocation.
  7. A completed intellectual property disclosure form.

The Investigator’s final progress report includes:

  1. A summary of research performed during the award and evaluation of the results. The summary should be technical, but targeted to a general scientific audience. The summary should be sufficiently detailed such that the Investigator’s research activities are clearly described. Figures and references can be included if appropriate. If the research differs from the originally funded proposal, please provide an explanation. The report must be signed by the Investigator and should not exceed four pages.
  2. A one-paragraph lay summary, for the public, detailing the accomplishments over the term of the award, including how the research has impacted the cancer field.
  3. An up-to-date curriculum vitae including:
  4. a. A bibliography of all publications resulting from the Investigator’s research (please submit pdf copies of reprints).
    b. An updated list of current and pending funding.
    c. A list of conferences and seminars attended and presentations given during the award year.
    d. Changes in the Investigator’s responsibilities or title (tenure/promotion, leadership positions, consultant work, etc.).

  5. A statement indicating how the award made a difference in the Investigator’s career.
  6. Brief comments on the most important accomplishment over the award term. Please address any issues or concerns regarding obstacles to success to which the Foundation might respond.
  7. A completed intellectual property disclosure form.
 

FINANCIAL

  • All Awardees will be required to submit projected annual budgets and yearly financial reports.
  • Monies may be used to cover salary (Investigator, technical staff, students, and post doctoral fellows) and/or research costs (supplies, equipment, etc.).
  • Monies will be paid in increments of $150,000 for the term of the award. However, the Committee will consider an accelerated payment schedule if the Awardee can demonstrate compelling need.

Award Policies and Procedures

Terms of the Award

All awards are made to the sponsoring institution for the support of the designated Damon Runyon-Rachleff Innovator. An award does not constitute an employer-employee relationship between the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation and the awardee.

Percent Effort

The Investigator must commit at least 80% of his/her full-time professional effort to research activities.

Usage of Funds

At the beginning of each award year a budget is required from the Investigator. Awards are in the amount of $150,000 of direct research costs per year for the term of the award. No indirect costs or institutional overhead are covered. Budget requests in excess of $150,000 in any one year must include a special justification and are subject to approval by the Foundation. The Innovation Award funds are intended to be flexible and can be used for a variety of scientific needs, including the Investigator’s salary, salaries for professional and technical personnel, special equipment, supplies and other miscellaneous items required to conduct the proposed research. The submitted budgets should be realistic estimates of the funds required for the proposed research and should be itemized by category according to the instructions on the budget form.

Publications/Presentations

Publications (including abstracts of presentations at scientific or clinical meetings) resulting from projects supported by the Foundation must carry the following acknowledgment: “[Name of Awardee] is a Damon Runyon-Rachleff Innovation Awardee supported (in part) by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation (DRR-[___]).”  Awardees are also strongly encouraged to identify themselves as a Damon Runyon-Rachleff Innovation Awardee when presenting their work at scientific conferences or accepting professional honors or awards.  Download a copy of the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation logo for inclusion in Power Point presentations or posters.

Should the Investigator wish to discontinue the project, leave the designated institution, or modify any agreement of the award letter, he/she must seek approval from the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation in advance.  Failure to comply with this requirement may result in immediate termination of the Award and may jeopardize any future awards to the grantee institution by the Foundation.

All award recipients must adhere to the terms of the Foundation’s award statement and invention policy.

Program Description

NOTICE: Institutional nominations have been reinstated. Please review carefully. The 2015 application deadline date for this award is Tuesday, February 17, 2015  

The Damon Runyon Clinical Investigator Award supports independent young physician-scientists conducting disease-oriented research that demonstrates a high level of innovation and creativity. The goal is to support the best young physician-scientists doing work aimed at improving the practice of cancer medicine. 

The Clinical Investigator Award responds to three recognized realities:

  • Though there has never been a more pressing need or more promising time for clinical cancer research, fewer young physicians enter this area of investigation every year.
  • The number of institutions committed to training young physicians in the scientific discipline and methodologies of clinical investigation is critically low.
  • The burden of medical school debt (averaging over $100,000) discourages many physicians from pursuing clinical investigation.

The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation’s award offers solutions to these realities. The awardee will receive financial support for three years, as well as assistance with certain research costs such as the purchase of equipment. The Foundation will also retire up to $100,000 of any medical school debt still owed by the awardee.

The Clinical Investigator Award program is specifically intended to provide outstanding young physicians with the resources and training structure essential to becoming successful clinical investigators. The goal is to increase the number of physicians capable of moving seamlessly between the laboratory and the patient’s bedside in search of breakthrough treatments.

> Current and former Damon Runyon Clinical Investigators and their projects.

Definition of Clinical Research

For the purposes of this award, the Foundation’s definition of clinical research will follow the definition set out in “The NIH Director’s Panel on Clinical Research Report to The Advisory Committee to The NIH Director,” December, 1997.

a) Patient-oriented research: Research conducted with human subjects (or on material of human origin such as tissues, specimens and cognitive phenomena) for which an investigator directly interacts with human subjects. This area of research includes: patient-based studies of mechanisms of human disease, diagnostic and therapeutic interventions, clinical trials and development of new technologies for the detection, treatment and prevention of human cancers.
b) Epidemiologic and behavioral studies.
c) Outcomes research and health services research.

Excluded from this definition are in vitro studies that utilize human tissues but do not deal directly with patients.  In other words, clinical or patient-oriented research is research in which it is necessary to know the identity of the patient(s) from whom the cells or tissues under study are derived.

Preference will be given to research that adheres to the “Handshake Rule,” meaning that the physician will conduct research studies that directly involve patients.

Partnership with NIH and NCI

Damon Runyon has a novel partnership with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI), which uniquely opens access to the NIH Clinical Center (CC) to Damon Runyon Clinical Investigators. The goal of this partnership is to use the special talent, expertise and resources of the participants to undertake pilot studies of specific diseases and to develop collaborative partnerships that accelerate clinical and translational cancer research, and thereby improve human health.

Potential opportunities for pilot partnership: 

1. Damon Runyon Clinical Investigator Award applicants may apply with a mentor or co-mentor from NCI or another NIH Institute. The proposal must identify the research to be done at and resources to be used at the NIH CC.
2. Current Damon Runyon Clinical Investigators may conduct a research project at the NIH CC in collaboration with an NIH tenured/tenure-track investigator. The Damon Runyon Clinical Investigator would be the PI or co-PI on the project.
3. Current Damon Runyon Clinical Investigators may request to use the special equipment or facilities at the NIH CC, which could provide opportunities for investigators that may not be possible in their home institutions. Examples are: obtaining research materials such as research PET ligands or products from the CC Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) facilities, or accessing other non patient-related activities/facilities. No NIH scientist collaboration would be required.

Please contact the Foundation’s Chief Scientific Officer, Yung Lie, PhD with any questions regarding NIH/NCI partnership opportunities (212.455.0521).

Research, Training and Development

During each award year, the applicant must commit a minimum of 80% of their full-time professional effort to the conduct of research and research career development. [In rare unique circumstances, the CIA Review Committee may consider an applicant with a very modest reduction of 80% protected time if their Department Chair can provide a compelling reason explaining why a waiver of the 80% requirement should be granted, what percentage of effort will be guaranteed, and what safeguards will be put in place to make sure the individual’s research will not be compromised by their clinical/administrative activities.]

The Mentor’s role is to foster the development of the applicant’s knowledge, technical and analytical skills, and capacity for scientific inquiry in the field of human disease-oriented clinical and translational research.  The Mentor also acts as an advocate for the applicant at the departmental, institutional, and professional levels.

Selection and Review

The Clinical Investigator Award Committee (CIAC) will review applications and select awardees for approval by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation's Board of Directors.  CIAC puts a premium on innovation and creativity when reviewing applications.

Selection Criteria

  • Excellence of the applicant and mentor.
  • Innovation, creativity, quality and originality of the research proposal.
  • The commitment of the mentor and institution to the development and training of the applicant as a skilled clinical research investigator.
  • Evidence of the applicant’s commitment to clinical translational and/or cancer prevention research and their ability to apply advances in laboratory research to clinical problems.
  • Importance of the proposed research to the field of cancer and/or cancer prevention.
  • Adherence of the proposal to the definition of clinical research as set out on this web page.
  • Adherence to the “Handshake Rule.”

Program Sponsors

Under the leadership of the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation, the Clinical Investigator Award is funded in part through Accelerating Cancer Cures, a collaboration of the biopharmaceutical industry, academia and young researchers formed to achieve breakthroughs against cancer by rebuilding the ranks of brilliant and committed clinical investigators who can translate science into cures.  Members include: Eli Lilly and Company, Celgene, Merck, Millennium: The Takeda Oncology Company, Pfizer and The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA).

  • Each applicant must be nominated by his/her institution. Applications will only be accepted from institutions that have been invited to sumbit them by the Foundation (See list). Five (5) nominations per institution, including its affiliated schools, will be accepted. Because of its number of affiliated hospitals, Harvard Medical School may submit up to six (6) nominations.
  • The applicant must have received an MD or MD/PhD degree(s) from an accredited institution, completed his/her subspecialty training and be board-eligible.
  • The applicant must hold a valid, active U.S. medical license at the time of application.
  • The applicant must apply within the first four (4) years of his/her initial full faculty appointment (cut-off July 2011). Adjunct or acting positions are not eligible.
  • Candidates holding or awarded R01s at the time of application are not eligible to apply.
  • The applicant must commit to spending 80% of their time conducting research. [In rare unique circumstances, the CIA Review Committee may consider an applicant with a very modest reduction of 80% protected time if their Department Chair can provide a compelling reason explaining why a waiver of the 80% requirement should be granted, what percentage of effort will be guaranteed, and what safeguards will be put in place to make sure the individual’s research will not be compromised by their clinical/administrative activities.]
  • The applicant is required to apply in conjunction with a Mentor who is established in the field of clinical translational cancer research, cancer prevention and/or epidemiology and can provide the critical guidance needed during the period of the award.  No more than two Damon Runyon Clinical Investigators will be funded to work with the same Mentor at any given time.
  • Candidates may apply up to three times during this eligibility period. 

Funding

The $450,000 award will be for a period of three years. Funding in the amount of $150,000 will be allocated to the awardee’s institution each year for the support of the Clinical Investigator.  Funds are intended to be flexible and can be used for a variety of scientific needs including the Investigator’s stipend and/or fringe benefits (up to $100,000), salaries for professional and technical personnel, special equipment, supplies and other miscellaneous items required to conduct the proposed research.  No part of this grant can be used for indirect costs or institutional overhead.

Other Funding

Investigators may receive funding from other sources to support their research.  However, no other physician-scientist mentored career development award from a private source (non-federal government) may be held concurrently with the Clinical Investigator Award.

Physician-scientist career development awards from the federal government including the National Institutes of Health (e.g., K-08, K-12, K-23), the Department of Defense, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs are allowed.

The Damon Runyon Clinical Investigator Award is designed to encourage and assist greater numbers of physicians to become clinical investigators and conduct patient-oriented research.  As part of this award program, the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation (the “Foundation”) will pay up to $100,000 of outstanding medical school loans of Damon Runyon Clinical Investigator Award recipients pursuant to the below policy.

Qualifying loans: Debt incurred for tuition and direct educational expenses during medical school and any interest thereon.  (Loans for general items or living expenses, e.g., housing, transportation, consumables, do not qualify for this program.)  Loans must be from a government entity, academic institution or commercial or chartered lending institution.

Eligibility and amount of support: Debt and interest thereon will be paid up to an amount equal to One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000) in the aggregate over the award period with amounts not to exceed Thirty Thousand Dollars ($30,000) in any one-year period with the remaining balance paid at the completion of the award, if the following conditions are met:

(i) Participants in this program must be current holders of the Damon Runyon Clinical Investigator Award in good standing.
(ii) Participants in this program must submit documentation regarding the loans (e.g., receipts and supporting documents for tuition and directly related expenses, loan agreements, payment information) to the Foundation within one month of acceptance of a Clinical Investigator Award to determine whether they qualify for this program.  Documentation of loan status and payment information must be provided to the Foundation annually, no later than one month prior to the award renewal date, as a condition of continued participation.
(iii) Participants enrolled in NIH-sponsored loan repayment programs or any other debt relief programs must disclose the details of such agreements to the Foundation.

Payments: For each year of eligibility, the Foundation will pay directly to each lender an amount representing the total payments owed by the participant for all qualifying loans for that year up to an aggregate maximum of $30,000 (“Annual Debt Payments”).  If the participant has qualifying loans with annual payments in excess of $30,000, the Foundation, in its discretion, will determine which loans it will pay.  Upon the successful completion of the Clinical Investigator Award, the Foundation will pay the lending institutions the remaining balance on any outstanding loans up to a maximum of $100,000 total (“Final Payment”).  If the participant does not demonstrate a continuing commitment to clinical research upon the completion of the Clinical Investigator Award, the Foundation reserves the right to withhold the Final Payment.

Consolidated loans: The Foundation will make repayments on consolidated loans that were originally obtained for qualifying medical school expenses but not when they have been combined or refinanced with non-qualifying loans.  Participants must submit the loan agreement for consolidated loans as well as loan agreements for each underlying loan.

Leave without pay: Loan repayments will not be made during leaves of absence unless written permission is granted by the Foundation.

Obligations not qualifying for repayment: (i) Loans not obtained from a government entity, academic institution, or a commercial or other chartered lending institution such as loans from friends, relatives, or other individuals.  (ii) Delinquent loans, loans in default, loans not current in their payment schedule, or loans already repaid.  (iii) Late fees, penalty fees, additional interest charges, or collection costs.

Reimbursement for increased income tax liabilities: Loan repayments made to lenders represent taxable income to program participants.  This income will be reported annually to the IRS and may result in an increase in participants’ Federal, State, and Local tax liabilities.  To offset tax liability increases, the Foundation will approximate the added liability using the applicable tax rates each year and pay this amount directly to the participant at the time of each repayment (“Additional Tax Payment”).  For purposes of the foregoing, the assumed tax rate shall be determined by the Foundation, in its sole discretion, and may or may not equal the tax rate that actually applies to the participant.

Payback Agreement: If a participant in this program terminates his or her Clinical Investigator Award prior to the end of the award term, the Foundation shall, in its sole discretion, be entitled to require repayment by the participant of all Annual Debt Payments and Additional Tax Payments.  The Foundation reserves the right to waive this payback requirement if the participant continues in clinical investigation after early termination of the Clinical Investigator Award.  This payback will be paid over the same period of time and in the same amounts as the initial payments by the Foundation.

Publications and Presentations

Publications (including abstracts of presentations at scientific or clinical meetings) resulting from projects supported by the Foundation must carry the following acknowledgment: “[Name of Awardee] is a Damon Runyon Clinical Investigator supported (in part) by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation (CI-#[__]).”

Awardees should identify themselves as Damon Runyon Clinical Investigators when presenting their work at scientific conferences or accepting professional honors or awards.  Download a copy of the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation logo for inclusion in Power Point presentations or posters.

Transfers or Termination

Should the Clinical Investigator wish to discontinue the project, leave the designated institution or modify any agreement on the award letter, he/she must seek approval from the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation in advance.  Failure to comply with this requirement will result in an immediate termination and may jeopardize any future awards to the institution by the Foundation.

All awardees must adhere to the terms of both our award statement and our invention policy.

Damon Runyon Physician-Scientist Training Award Overview

Funding | Eligibility | Terms of the Award | Application Guidelines 

Program Description

Physician-scientists who are both clinically trained and expert researchers are essential to the successful translation of scientific discovery into more effective patient therapies. They have the unique capacity to blend their insights from treating patients and working in the laboratory in a way that enables and accelerates medical advances. However, the pipeline of physician-scientists is dwindling. The decline in this vital cadre of cancer researchers is occurring at a time when cancer research holds the greatest promise of improving survival and quality of life among cancer patients. A growing shortage of physician-scientists means that major laboratory research discoveries will progress to patient application ever more slowly. If the shortage continues unabated, some may not reach patient application at all, thus presenting a crisis in cancer research.

There are two major obstacles to recruiting more physicians into research careers:

•    Financial:  By the time physicians have completed medical school and their clinical training, they are in their late 20’s or early 30’s.  They are buying homes and starting families.  Many also finish medical school with significant educational debt (averaging >$150,000).  If they go into private practice, they can immediately begin earning several hundred thousand dollars a year.  If they choose research careers, they will earn considerably less, more in the range of $70,000-$100,000.  Therefore, many physicians who are interested in research feel they cannot afford that career.

•    Opportunity:  Unless a physician is accepted into a joint MD/PhD program upon entering medical school, it is very difficult to obtain the extensive research training necessary to perform cutting-edge cancer research after medical school.  Physicians who decide later in medical school or during their clinical fellowship that they are drawn to research (“late bloomers”) find themselves at a disadvantage, because they lack sufficient research experience to be competitive with MD/PhD scientists for existing funding opportunities.

In an effort to confront the crisis arising from a growing dearth of physician-scientists, Damon Runyon wishes to encourage more physicians to pursue research careers. To do so, the Foundation is establishing a pilot program designed to recruit outstanding U.S. Specialty Board-eligible physicians into cancer research careers by providing them with the opportunity for a protected research training experience under the mentorship of a highly qualified and gifted mentor after they have completed all of their clinical training.  The goals are to a) transform these individuals into the highest quality physician-scientists, capable of conducting research that has the potential to transform the diagnosis, treatment and/or prevention of cancer and b) to eliminate the financial disincentive to entering this career path.

This award will provide a funding source that will enable these individuals to pursue research intensively (at least 80% effort) for up to four years, while, if they wish to maintain their clinical skills, continuing to be clinically active (no more than 20% effort).  With the recognition that very few other funding sources (if any) exist to support these developing physician-scientists, this award is structured to provide recipients with significant salary support and necessary research expenses, with the expectation that their institutions will provide an environment and additional support (such as benefits and institutional overhead) to ensure their success.  In addition, the Foundation will retire up to $100,000 of any medical school debt still owed by an award recipient.

This is a pilot program, which will award up to 3 awards per year initially.  The future size of the program will be judged based upon its progress, success, and the amount of available funding.

The primary criteria used to evaluate applicants are:

•   The quality of the applicant, his/her commitment to pursuing a research career and potential to excel in cancer research.

•   The capacity of the Mentor to provide a robust training experience that will accelerate the development of the applicant’s scientific skills and prepare him/her to independently conduct high quality, innovative cancer-related research.  The Mentor must have generated a proven track record in the successful training of other MDs in research careers.

•   The quality of a formal research proposal written by the applicant in a process that is overseen by her/his mentor (importance of the problem, originality and feasibility of the proposed approach, appropriateness of technical aspects of the research plan, and clarity of presentation).

•   The commitment of the institution to the development and training of future physician-scientists, including providing the necessary protected time for research.

•   The importance of the proposed research to the understanding of cancer and/or prevention, diagnosis or treatment of cancer.  

Funding

The award will be for a period of four years. Funding will be allocated to the awardee’s institution each year for the support of the scientist.  Funds are to be used for stipend and/or research expenses. No part of this grant can be used for indirect costs or institutional overhead.

Year 1 - $100,000
Year 2 - $110,000
Year 3 - $120,000
Year 4 - $130,000
(Total $460,000)*

*Awardees still in their ACGME training years will be paid an award amount commensurate with their institutional salary based on post-graduate year (i.e., PGY6 salary). Upon completion of that training, the award amount will increase to $100,000, with a $10,000 increase for each subsequent year of the Damon Runyon award.

Debt Repayment Program

The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation will retire up to $100,000 of any qualifying medical school debt still owed by the awardee.  Payment will be 50% of the outstanding debt during the award period and 50% upon completion of the program, if the awardee demonstrates a commitment and intent to continue a career as a physician-scientist.  Note: qualified candidates must first apply to the NIH Loan Repayment Program in order to be eligible for loan repayment from Damon Runyon.

Other funding

Awardees may receive funding from other sources to support their research.  However, no other physician-scientist career development award from a private source or federal government (e.g., K08 or K23) may be held concurrently with this award.

Eligibility

Physician-scientist applicants (MDs only) must have completed their residencies and clinical training, be U.S. Specialty Board eligible at the time of application, and be able to devote at least 80% of their time and effort to Damon Runyon-supported research.  MD/PhDs are not eligible to apply.

Applicants may apply at any time prior to their initial assistant professorship appointment (or equivalent). Postdoctoral fellows, clinical fellows, and clinical instructors are eligible to apply.  If the Awardee transitions to an assistant professorship appointment (or equivalent) during the award term, he/she must terminate the award.

Candidates holding or awarded NIH K awards at the time of application are not eligible to apply. (Candidates holding institutional K12 awards may apply, but must return their K12 funding to the US Government/NIH if they are awarded a Damon Runyon Physician-Scientist Training Award.)

Candidates must apply with a Mentor.  The Mentor’s role is to foster the development of the applicant’s knowledge, technical and analytical skills, and capacity for scientific inquiry in the field of basic or translational research chosen by the candidate and in which the Mentor is an outstanding figure. The Mentor will also serve as an advocate for the applicant at departmental, institutional, and other relevant professional levels.
•    Only one fellowship application will be accepted from a Mentor per review session; there is no limit, however, to the number of applications from an institution.
•    No more than two awardees will be funded to work with the same Mentor at any given time.

Letter of Commitment From Institution/Department
A letter endorsed by both the Dean or Center Director, and the Head/Chair of the Department, should (1) confirm the applicant’s and Mentor’s academic appointments, (2) state the institution’s commitment to support the applicant’s research efforts, the nature of the support that will be provided, and guarantee a minimum of 80% protected time for the applicant’s research to fulfill the terms of the award.  The Foundation will monitor the awardee’s protected time during the course of the award to ensure that this commitment is being met. 

Terms of the Award

All awards are made to the sponsoring institution for support of the designated awardee. An award does not constitute an employer-employee relationship between the Foundation and the recipient.

Physician-scientists must devote their principal time and effort (at least 80 percent) to Damon Runyon-supported research activities.

The Damon Runyon Foundation will allow up to 12 weeks of paid parental leave for birth/adoptive parents consistent with their institution's policy. The Foundation must be notified in advance of the leave.

If the Awardee transitions to an assistant professorship appointment (or equivalent) during the award term, he/she must terminate the award.

Should the Awardee and/or Mentor wish to discontinue the project, leave the designated institution or modify any aspect of the award, he or she must seek approval from the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation in advance. Failure to comply with this requirement may jeopardize any future awards to the institution and/or Mentor by the Foundation.

Fellowship Award Overview

Eligibility | Funding | Confidentiality | Reporting | Publications/Presentations | Terms | Damon Runyon Dale F. Frey Award

Program Description

The Foundation encourages all theoretical and experimental research relevant to the study of cancer and the search for cancer causes, mechanisms, therapies and prevention.

Candidates must apply for the fellowship under the guidance of a Sponsor—a scientist (tenured, tenure-track or equivalent position) capable of providing mentorship to the Fellow.  In addition to aiding in the planning, execution and supervision of the proposed research, the Sponsor’s role is to foster the development of the Fellow’s overall knowledge, technical and analytical skills, and capacity for scientific inquiry.  The Sponsor is also expected to assist the Fellow in attaining his/her career goals.

Awards are made to institutions for the support of the Fellow under direct supervision of the Sponsor.  Candidates who have already accepted a postdoctoral research fellowship award are not eligible.

The primary criteria used to evaluate applicants are:

  • the quality of the research proposal (importance of the problem, originality of approach, appropriateness of techniques and clarity of presentation)
  • the qualifications, experience and productivity of both the candidate and the Sponsor
  • the quality of the research training environment in which the proposed research is to be conducted and its potential for broadening and strengthening the candidate's ability to independently conduct innovative and substantive research.  The proposed research and training environment should represent a new opportunity for the candidate to expand his/her scientific skill set.  Direct extensions of the candidate's graduate work (in approach, technique or exact area of study) will not be funded.

Damon Runyon Postdoctoral Research Fellowships are granted for a four-year term with second-, third- and fourth- year funding contingent upon satisfactory progress reports.  Fellows in their first and third years of funding will attend Damon Runyon Fellows' Retreats designed to foster collaboration and interaction between scientists working in different fields relevant to cancer.

All fellowship awards are approved by the Board of Directors of the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation acting upon the recommendation of the Fellowship Award Committee.

Eligibility

  • Applicants must have completed one or more of the following degrees or its equivalent: MD, PhD, MD/PhD, DDS, DVM.  The applicant must include a copy of his/her diploma to confirm date of conferral.
    (If an applicant has not yet received his/her PhD diploma but has successfully completed all PhD requirements, including PhD defense, he/she may submit a letter from the graduate school explicitly stating such, with the date of the successful PhD defense and date of degree conferral.)
  • Level 1 Funding: Basic and physician-scientists must have received their degrees no more than one year prior to the FAC meeting at which their applications are to be considered.*  Applicants must not have been in their Sponsors' labs for more than one year prior to the date of the FAC meeting at which their applications are to be considered* and are expected to devote 100% of their time and effort to Damon Runyon-supported research activities.
*The cut-off date is day 15 of the month immediately preceding the month FAC meets.  The applicant must include a copy of his/her diploma to confirm date of conferral.  (See Deadlines chart.)
  • Level 2 Funding: Physician-scientist applicants (MD, MD/PhD, DDS, DVM or the equivalent) must have completed their residencies and clinical training, must be board eligible in the United States at the start date of the Damon Runyon Fellowship, and be able to devote at least 80% of their time and effort to Damon Runyon-supported research activities. Applicants may apply at any time prior to their initial assistant professorship appointment (or equivalent); postdoctoral fellows, clinical fellows and clinical instructors are eligible to apply. Candidates holding or awarded NIH K awards at the time of application are not eligible to apply. Candidates holding institutional K12 awards may apply, but must turn-back K12 funding if they are awarded a Damon Runyon Fellowship.
  • The proposed research must be conducted at a university, hospital or research institution.
  • No more than two Damon Runyon and/or Damon Runyon-Sohn Fellows will be funded to work with the same Sponsor at any given time.
  • Only one fellowship application will be accepted from a Sponsor or Fellow per review session; there is no limit, however, to the number of applications from an institution.
  • Postdoctoral training in the same institution in which the applicant received his/her degree is discouraged, particularly if it is in the same department.  (If either situation applies, the applicant must address the reason(s) in his/her application.)  Proposals to continue training in the laboratory where the applicant received his/her PhD will not be considered.  Proposals that are direct extensions of graduate work will not be funded.
  • Candidates who have already accepted a postdoctoral research fellowship award are not eligible.
  • Candidates who are pursuing a degree are not eligible.
  • Candidates applying to work in foreign-based or United States government laboratories may be awarded a fellowship if they are considered to be especially meritorious or if the program represents an unusual opportunity for postdoctoral training.
  • Foreign candidates may apply to do their research only in the United States.

Funding

The award may not be used for institutional overhead or indirect costs.

    a.  health insurance (if requested by the Fellow)
    b.  scientific subscriptions
    c.  contact our office for approval of any items not listed here
  6. The Foundation requires that the Dependent Child Allowance be reported as received in the annual financial report, but does not require reporting on how the allowance is spent.

Publications/Presentations

Publications (including abstracts of presentations at scientific or clinical meetings) resulting from projects supported by the Foundation must carry the following acknowledgment: "[Name of Awardee] is a Damon Runyon Fellow supported by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation (DRG-[___])."

Contact caitlin.campbell@damonrunyon.org if you do not know your DRG #.

Awardees should identify themselves as Damon Runyon Fellows, particularly when presenting their work at professional conferences.  Download a copy of the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation logo for inclusion in Power Point presentations or posters.

Terms of the Award

All awards are made to the sponsoring institution for support of the designated Fellow.  An award does not constitute an employer-employee relationship between the Foundation and the recipient.  Supplementation of stipends is permitted from either the host institution or sponsor’s grants, but not by any other fellowship awards or grants.  The total stipend should not exceed the level of support for other professionals at the same level of training in that institution.

Fellows are permitted to obtain additional awards or grants to cover research expenses only.  Fellows are not permitted to hold any other award or grant that supplements their stipend.  Fellows are required to seek approval from the Foundation before applying for any other award or grant. Budgetary overlap is not allowed.  Therefore, it is critical that all current and pending grant support for your research be reported to the Foundation and the relationship of that support to the Damon Runyon funded project be explained.

Damon Runyon Fellowship awards are intended for full-time research.  Physician-scientists must devote their principal time and effort (at least 80 percent) to Damon Runyon-supported research activities.  Activities constituting the remaining 20 percent of time and effort should be clearly specified in the application and in the annual progress report.  Damon Runyon Fellows are not permitted to pursue additional degrees during the course of their fellowship.

The Damon Runyon Foundation will allow up to 12 weeks of paid parental leave for birth/adoptive parents consistent with their institution’s policy.  The Foundation must be notified in advance of the leave.

Should the Fellow and/or Sponsor wish to discontinue the project, leave the designated institution or modify any aspect of the award, he or she must seek approval from the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation in advance.  Failure to comply with this requirement may jeopardize any future awards to the institution and/or Sponsor by the Foundation.

All awardees must adhere to the terms of both our award statement and our invention policy.

Damon Runyon Dale F. Frey Award for Breakthrough Scientists

At the end of the Fellowship, there are often a select few Damon Runyon Fellows who have greatly exceeded the Foundation’s highest expectations.  To catapult their research careers—and their impact on cancer—the Foundation will make an additional investment in these exceptional individuals by selecting them as recipients of the Damon Runyon Dale F. Frey Award for Breakthrough Scientists. Damon Runyon Fellows are eligible to apply for the Dale F. Frey Award one time only, in either the third or fourth year of their award.

Damon Runyon-Sohn Pediatric Cancer Fellowship Award Overview

Eligibility | Funding | Confidentiality | Reporting | Publications/Presentations | TermsFrey Award

Program Description

The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation has joined together with the Sohn Conference Foundation, dedicated to curing pediatric cancers, to establish the Damon Runyon-Sohn Pediatric Cancer Fellowship Award.  This award provides funding to basic scientists and clinicians who conduct research with the potential to significantly impact the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of one or more pediatric cancers.

Candidates must apply for the fellowship under the guidance of a Sponsor—a scientist (tenured, tenure-track or equivalent position) capable of providing mentorship to the Fellow.  In addition to aiding in the planning, execution and supervision of the proposed research, the Sponsor’s role is to foster the development of the Fellow’s overall knowledge, technical and analytical skills, and capacity for scientific inquiry.  The Sponsor is also expected to assist the Fellow in attaining his/her career goals.

Awards are made to institutions for the support of the Fellow under direct supervision of the Sponsor.  Candidates who have already accepted a postdoctoral research fellowship award are not eligible.

The primary criteria used to evaluate applicants are:

  • potential impact of the research on pediatric cancer
  • the quality of the research proposal (importance of the problem, originality of approach, appropriateness of techniques and clarity of presentation)
  • the qualifications, experience and productivity of both the candidate and the Sponsor
  • the quality of the research training environment in which the proposed research is to be conducted and its potential for broadening and strengthening the candidate's ability to conduct innovative and substantive research.  The proposed research and training environment should represent a new opportunity for the candidate to expand his/her scientific skill set.  Direct extensions of the candidate's graduate work (in approach, technique or exact area of study) will not be funded.

Damon Runyon-Sohn Pediatric Cancer Fellowships are granted for a four-year term with second-, third- and fourth-year funding contingent upon satisfactory progress reports.  Fellows in their first and third years of funding will attend Damon Runyon Fellows' Retreats designed to foster collaboration and interaction between scientists working in different fields relevant to cancer.

All fellowship awards are approved by the Board of Directors of the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation acting upon the recommendation of the Damon Runyon-Sohn Pediatric Cancer Fellowship Award Committee.

Eligibility

  • Applicants must have completed one or more of the following degrees or its equivalent: MD, PhD, MD/PhD, DDS, DVM.  The applicant must include a copy of his/her diploma to confirm date of conferral.
    (If an applicant has not yet received his/her PhD diploma but has successfully completed all PhD requirements, including PhD defense, he/she may submit a letter from the graduate school explicitly stating such, with the date of the successful PhD defense and date of degree conferral.)
  • Level 1 Funding: Basic and physician-scientists must have received their degrees no more than one year prior to the FAC meeting at which their applications are to be considered.*  Applicants must not have been in their Sponsors' labs for more than one year prior to the date of the FAC meeting at which their applications are to be considered* and are expected to devote 100% of their time and effort to Damon Runyon-supported research activities.
*The cut-off date is day 15 of the month immediately preceding the month FAC meets. The applicant must include a copy of his/her diploma to confirm date of conferral. (See Deadlines chart.)
  • Level 2 Funding: Physician-scientist applicants (MD, MD/PhD, DDS, DVM or the equivalent) must have completed their residencies and clinical training, must be board eligible in the United States at the start date of the Damon Runyon-Sohn Fellowship, and be able to devote at least 80% of their time and effort to Damon Runyon-Sohn supported research activities. Applicants may apply at any time prior to their initial assistant professorship appointment (or equivalent); postdoctoral fellows, clinical fellows and clinical instructors are eligible to apply. Candidates holding or awarded NIH K awards at the time of application are not eligible to apply. Candidates holding institutional K12 awards may apply, but must turn-back K12 funding if they are awarded a Damon Runyon-Sohn Pediatric Cancer Fellowship.
  • The proposed research must be conducted at a university, hospital or research institution.
  • No more than two Damon Runyon and/or Damon Runyon-Sohn Fellows will be funded to work with the same Sponsor at any given time.
  • Only one fellowship application will be accepted from a Sponsor or Fellow per review session; there is no limit, however, to the number of applications from an institution.
  • Postdoctoral training in the same institution in which the applicant received his/her degree is discouraged, particularly if it is in the same department.  (If either situation applies, the applicant must address the reason(s) in his/her application.)  Proposals to continue training in the laboratory where the applicant received his/her PhD will not be considered.  Proposals that are direct extensions of graduate work will not be funded.
  • Candidates who have already accepted a postdoctoral research fellowship award are not eligible.
  • Candidates who are pursuing a degree are not eligible.
  • Candidates applying to work in foreign-based or United States government laboratories may be awarded a fellowship if they are considered to be especially meritorious or if the program represents an unusual opportunity for postdoctoral training.
  • Foreign candidates may apply to do their research only in the United States.

Funding

The award may not be used for institutional overhead or indirect costs.

Expense Allowance

The $2,000 expense allowance is awarded to the laboratory in which the Fellow is working and can be used by the Fellow for his/her educational and scientific expenses.  With a written request to the Foundation from the Fellow, the expense allowance may be used to defray the cost of health benefits.  The Fellow determines how he/she would like to spend the money with approval from his/her sponsor.  It is not an allowance for institutional overhead, postdoctoral scholar registration fees or postdoctoral fellowship taxes.  Institutions may not automatically deduct any fees from this allowance without the Fellow’s approval.  If you have any questions on how the money may be spent, please contact the Foundation (212.455.0520 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)).

Dependent Child Allowance

The Foundation also provides a Dependent Child Allowance of $1,000 per child per year.  (There is no allowance for a spouse.)  Eligible Fellows must submit a dependent child allowance form and a copy of the birth or adoption certificate for each child.

ConfidentialityAgreement

Fellows may not enter into confidentiality agreements that prevent or delay them from publishing and/or presenting their Damon Runyon-supported research.

Reporting

SCIENTIFIC

Second-, third- and fourth-year funding of awards is contingent upon satisfactory review of the annual progress reports.  All reports are kept strictly confidential.  The reports serve as an auditing tool to monitor research progress and assure that the Fellow's research is on target with the funded project.

At the end of the 11th, 23rd and 35th months of funding, the Fellow must submit a detailed progress report, not to exceed three pages, that includes:

  1. A summary of research performed during the award year and evaluation of the results.  The summary should be technical, but targeted to a general scientific audience.  It should be sufficiently detailed such that the Fellow’s research activities over the award year are clearly articulated.  Figures and references may be included if appropriate.  If the research differs from the originally funded proposal, please provide an explanation.  The report must be signed by both the Fellow and the Sponsor.
  2. A brief, lay abstract of research performed during the award year, including how the research is relevant to pediatric cancer.  The lay summary should not exceed one page.

  2. Indicate any carry-over of the previous year’s expense allowance in the second row as an amount received in addition to the current year’s $2,000 allowance.
  3. If the expense allowance was used for travel, please provide the following details.
    a.  name and location of scientific meeting or conference attended
    b.  dates of meeting/conference
    c.  use of funds; restricted to registration fee, lodging, meals, transportation (if by train or plane, must be coach class ticket only).
  4. If the expense allowance was used for supplies, please provide a list of the general categories of the supplies.  If any one piece of equipment purchased costs $1,500 or more, please provide the name of the item, date of purchase, and price.
  5. The only allowable purchases that may be listed in the “other” category are:
    a.  health insurance (if requested by the Fellow)
    b.  scientific subscriptions
    c.  contact our office for approval of any items not listed here
  6. The Foundation requires that the Dependent Child Allowance be reported as received in the annual financial report, but does not require reporting on how the allowance is spent.

Publications/Presentations

Publications (including abstracts of presentations at scientific or clinical meetings) resulting from projects supported by the Foundations must carry the following acknowledgment: "[Name of Awardee] is a Damon Runyon-Sohn Pediatric Cancer Fellow supported by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation and The Sohn Conference Foundation (DRSG-#[___])."

Contact caitlin.campbell@damonrunyon.org if you do not know your DRSG #.

Awardees should identify themselves as Damon Runyon-Sohn Fellows, particularly when presenting their work at professional conferences.  Download a copy of the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation logo for inclusion in Power Point presentations or posters.

Terms of the Award

All awards are made to the sponsoring institution for support of the designated Fellow.  An award does not constitute an employer-employee relationship between the Foundation and the recipient.  Supplementation of stipends is permitted from either the host institution or sponsor’s grants, but not by any other fellowship awards or grants.  The total stipend should not exceed the level of support for other professionals at the same level of training in that institution.

Fellows are permitted to obtain additional awards or grants to cover research expenses only.  Fellows are not permitted to hold any other award or grant that supplements their stipend.  Fellows are required to seek approval from the Foundation before applying for any other award or grant. Budgetary overlap is not allowed.  Therefore, it is critical that all current and pending grant support for your research be reported to the Foundation and the relationship of that support to the Damon Runyon funded project be explained.

Damon Runyon-Sohn Fellowship awards are intended for full-time research.  Physician-scientists must devote their principal time and effort (at least 80 percent) to Damon Runyon-supported research activities.  Activities constituting the remaining 20 percent of time and effort should be clearly specified in the application and in the annual progress report.  Damon Runyon-Sohn Fellows are not permitted to pursue additional degrees during the course of their fellowship.

The Damon Runyon Foundation will allow up to 12 weeks of paid parental leave for birth/adoptive parents consistent with their institution’s policy.  The Foundation must be notified in advance of the leave.

Should the Fellow and/or Sponsor wish to discontinue the project, leave the designated institution or modify any aspect of the award, he or she must seek approval from the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation in advance.  Failure to comply with this requirement may jeopardize any future awards to the institution and/or Sponsor by the Foundation.

All awardees must adhere to the terms of both our award statement and our invention policy.

 

Damon Runyon Dale F. Frey Award for Breakthrough Scientists

At the end of the Fellowship, there are often a select few Damon Runyon Fellows who have greatly exceeded the Foundation’s highest expectations.  To catapult their research careers—and their impact on cancer—the Foundation will make an additional investment in these exceptional individuals by selecting them as recipients of the Damon Runyon Dale F. Frey Award for Breakthrough Scientists. Damon Runyon-Sohn Fellows are eligible to apply for the Dale F. Frey Award one time only, in either the third or fourth year of their award.
