Catchment Area Health Pilot Awards


Release date: 1/17/19

Due date: 3/29/2019

Funds are available from the Fred Hutchinson/University of Washington Cancer Consortium (Cancer Consortium) Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) to support cancer-related pilot projects focused on cancer health disparities within the Consortium’s catchment area, which is defined as the NCI SEER Puget Sound geographic area. This competition will provide up to three awards of up to $80,000 direct costs for one year to support pilot projects. Consortium members are eligible for this pilot funding.

The research plan should address one or more of the following topics:

  • Designing prevention and/or risk-reducing strategies for:
    • one of the cancers (breast, colorectal, lung, hematologic, and prostate) highest in incidence and mortality in the catchment area 
    • liver cancer, a leading cancer for Asian/Pacific Islanders and Hispanics/Lations in the catchment area
    • pancreatic cancer, a leading cancer for African Amerians in the catchment area
  • Mitigating cancer-related behaviors that put communities at risk of cancer
  • Aligning communities to meet screening recommendations for breast, cervical, and colorectal             cancers
  • Reducing cancer burden in rural communities within the catchment area
  • Increasing enrollment of underserved minorities into Consortium clinical trials

Applications and letters of support are to be submitted via email as one complete pdf file to Kathy Briant (kbriant@fredhutch.org). 

Only one application per Consortium Research Program will be accepted.  More than one application will be considered from investigators affiliated with "Other Oncology"
