UC Cancer Research Coordinating Committee (UC CRCC): Faculty Seed Grants 2023-2024

The Cancer Research Coordinating Committee (CRCC) is pleased to issue a request for proposals for the 2024-25 Faculty Seed Grants. The CRCC is a systemwide, faculty-directed cancer research program that provides one-year seed grants for topics in any discipline that address any aspect of cancer, including its origins, prevention and cure. CRCC funds support meritorious research spanning all areas from basic research to applied clinical and community-based research in any field relevant to cancer.

The CRCC provides one-year seed grants to faculty on the 10 UC campuses, with the expectation that the most promising endeavors will become competitive for larger, long-term grants from other funding sources. Currently, the CRCC awards grants to UC Academic Senate faculty in the following categories:

  • New faculty to initiate cancer research projects;
  • Established investigators in other areas of research to initiate cancer research projects; 
  • Established cancer investigators to initiate cancer studies in new areas. 

The CRCC encourages proposals from faculty whose research addresses cancer disparities or whose backgrounds are not well-represented in cancer research.
