The Chicago Cancer Health Equity Collaborative (ChicagoCHEC) has announced a Request for Proposals to support two collaborative projects for innovative research toward cancer health equity spanning the disciplines of basic, clinical, translational, prevention, control, behavioral, population, and/or community engagement research. The RFP can be found here.
Faculty from the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC), Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU), and Northwestern University (NU) are eligible to receive funding. Preference will be given to projects that include a junior faculty member (i.e., someone who has never held R01 level funding as a Principal Investigator) from any of the three institutions.
Each proposal requires collaboration from a team of investigators across the three institutions as multiple PIs. All proposals require at least one partner organization that is a community-based organization or other type of partner, including but not limited to federal or local government agencies, school districts, and/or healthcare providers.
