The session will provide necessary fundamental information for radiation oncologists engaging in basic, translational or clinical research or conducting clinical trials to successfully compete for funding opportunities. It will begin with an overview of the types of funding/grant mechanisms available, including federal grants (NIH, DoD, NSF, etc)., private foundations and professional societies and philanthropic funds. A second presentation by an NIH Program Officer will address what NIH is looking for in a successful grant (novelty, responsiveness, scientific rigor etc.) and provide detailed information about the key concepts and policies that every applicant should be aware of including salary cap and effort, scientific and budgetary overlap, etc. The third presentation will describe some of the opportunities for foundation/society funding, strategies necessary to secure this funding, and how it is different from federal funding. Finally, a panel of physician-scientists with a broad range of research interests spanning clinical to basic research who have been successful in securing funding will describe their own experiences, share lessons they learned along the way and answer audience questions.
