The Extramural Discovery Science Accelerator Award from the American Cancer Society supports the commercialization of an ongoing cancer research project and to validate and de-risk technologies. Proposals should address key experiment(s) required to move findings toward commercialization that do not easily fit into traditional grant funding mechanisms. This mechanism is not designed to initiate new projects or develop new directions for an ongoing project. The proposal should be commercially driven with the PI having a plan to license the technology, either to an established company or a start-up if the experiment(s) are successful. Examples of research that align with the focus of this funding initiative include but are not limited to:

  • Dosing, toxicity and/or efficacy testing
  • Testing of biopsies or other patient samples to correlate clinical outcome
  • Technologies for healthcare delivery

The applicant must be a current or former ACS grantee and currently have a full-time faculty appointment, at an eligible US institution. The Grants provide 75000 USD/year for 1 year (direct costs only).

Applications submitted May 1 to August 31, 2024, will be reviewed in September 2024.
