PDF Grants seek to attract and support promising scientists who are embarking on careers dedicated to breast cancer research. By providing funding to outstanding postdoctoral/postgraduate fellows under the guidance of a mentor, Komen seeks to ensure that a diverse pool of highly trained scientists will emerge as the next generation of leaders in the field of breast cancer research. PDF grants provide support for basic research projects that have significant potential to advance our understanding of breast cancer, lead to reductions in breast cancer incidence and/or mortality, and move us toward the goal of a world without breast cancer. Two RFAs have been released for this mechanism: • CCR-Clinical Research – for clinical fellows proposing clinical research (as defined within the RFA), and • CCR-Basic and Translational Research – for basic or clinical fellows proposing laboratory-based biomedical research.
