Dartmouth Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (DDCCNE) Pilot Projects

With funding provided by the National Cancer Institute especially for this purpose, the Dartmouth Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (DCCNE) will fund pilot projects that advance cancer investigations related to magnetic hyperthermia treatment of tumors. The purpose of pilot grants is to support preliminary studies that demonstrate novel approaches and provide preliminary data necessary for future grant applications. Possible areas of funding include; development of novel magnetic nanoparticles or coatings for nanoparticles; novel imaging techniques for magnetic nanoparticles; novel local non-invasive temperature measurement techniques applicable to magnetic hyperthermia applications; and novel application of magnetic nanoparticles for therapeutic purposes.

American Cancer Society (ACS) Institutional Research Grants

Funds for seed money grants are available from our ACS Institutional Research Grant. Applications are reviewed for funding priority by the local ACS/IRG Review Committee at Norris Cotton Cancer Center. The principal purpose of these grants is to support studies undertaken by investigators who are early in their careers and need pilot data before submitting individual research grant applications. More information, past awards, and application.

Hitchcock Foundation Awards

The Hitchcock Foundation offers career development and clinical research fellowships, a student research award, research grants of up to $30,000, a special projects fund, and a loan fund. Applications can be downloaded from The Hitchcock Foundation website. For more information, call (603) 653-1231.

Norris Cotton Cancer Center Developmental Funds (Prouty Pilot Projects)

The Prouty Pilot Project mechanism is designed to advance meritorious cancer research and collaborative interactions. Investigators at all levels may apply for support for preliminary studies that pursue novel approaches to the problems of cancer, build new interdisciplinary collaborations, and emphasize translation. More information, past awards, and application.

Norris Cotton Cancer Center Research Awards

These awards are made from time to time at the discretion of the Cancer Research Committee to fund projects of particular merit, as identified through a peer-review process defined by the Cancer Center Administration. More information and past awards.
