Supporting novel and innovative research projects
The SWOG/Hope Foundation Impact Award program aims to advance SWOG research by funding the early and conceptual stages of these projects. The work proposed should use resources from completed SWOG studies or be directly translatable to future clinical trials in SWOG and the National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN). Projects may involve scientific risk but potentially lead to a breakthrough in a particular area, or to the development of novel techniques, agents, methodologies, models, or applications that could have a major impact on cancer research.
It is expected that support via this mechanism will lead to subsequent extramural funding from other sources, and will be a metric of success for this grant program. In addition, publications citing SWOG and The Hope Foundation will be further measurements.
