The PCRP Prostate Cancer Training Award mechanism was introduced in FY06. Since then, 671 applications have been received, and 220 have been recommended for funding.
The Prostate Cancer Training Award supports predoctoral or postdoctoral training opportunities focused on prostate cancer research or patient care for individuals in the early stages of their careers. The trainee will be considered the Principal Investigator (PI) and author of the proposal. These awards primarily provide salary support for the PI and require the active involvement of a mentor who is an established prostate cancer researcher, as evidenced by a demonstrated record of funding and publications in prostate cancer research. The focus of these awards is on the PI, the mentor, and the training program and environment.
All applications for the Prostate Cancer Training Award are to be written by the proposed trainee, with appropriate direction from the mentor. The PCRP seeks applications from the wide spectrum of basic to clinical research, that are responsive to at least one of the PCRP focus areas. It is encouraged, although not required, that Prostate Cancer Training Award applications also be responsive to at least one of the PCRP overarching challenges.
It is the responsibility of the PI to clearly and explicitly articulate how the project addresses the following important aspects of the Prostate Cancer Training Award:
1. Principal Investigator and Mentor: The PI must demonstrate strong qualifications for and a commitment to pursuing a career as a prostate cancer researcher or clinician. Submission to this funding opportunity requires a mentor, appropriate to the proposal, who has experience in prostate cancer research as demonstrated by a record of funding and publications. The selected mentor should be well qualified to significantly contribute to the development of the PI toward a career in prostate cancer research.
2. Training Program and Environment: The PI must outline an individualized training program designed to prepare him/her for an independent career in prostate cancer research or patient care. An environment appropriate to the proposed training and research project must be clearly described.
