Massey Pilot Project Program

VCU Massey Cancer Center offers funding for pilot projects to encourage new collaborative cancer research projects. Massey research members and associate members are eligible to apply for up to $50,000 for a one-year project. RFAs are issued every year in January and July.

The intent of these pilot projects is to provide initial funding for new, collaborative projects with significant involvement of at least two independent investigators. A major purpose of this program is to allow collaborative research teams the ability to gather preliminary data needed for the investigators to prepare a successful grant application for a larger study.

All interested investigators are required to submit a Pre-Application Form prior to submitting a full application. Pre-Application Forms, Submission and Budget Guidelines, as well as the latest Call for Applications are available below.
