Additionally, the Scholar
and Career Guide are expected to communicate and collaborate with other members of the MA (other Scholars and Career Guides, MA Leadership), and build relationships within the melanoma patient advocacy community.
The program is open to researchers in the USA and worldwide. The PI must not be more than 7 years from obtaining their first faculty-level appointment as of the full application submission deadline
The award provides up to 550,000 USD over 3 years. Indirect costs may be covered.
