Program Description

The OCRP Ovarian Cancer Academy, which was initially created in FY09, is intended to be a unique, interactive virtual academy providing intensive mentoring, national networking, and a peer group for junior faculty. The overarching goal of the Ovarian Cancer Academy is to develop successful, highly productive ovarian cancer researchers in a collaborative research training environment. The Ovarian Cancer Academy is a virtual career development and research training platform that currently consists of nine Early-Career Investigator/Designated Mentor pairs from different institutions and one Academy Dean; two additional Early-Career Investigator/Designated Mentor pairs are pending awards. Information about the Academy is available in the FY12 and FY13 Ovarian Cancer Program Booklets at http://cdmrp.army.mil/ocrp/pbks/pbks.shtml. The Academy Dean serves as a resource for the Early-Career Investigators and Designated Mentors, assessing the progress of the Early-Career Investigators, and facilitating communication and collaboration among all of the Early-Career Investigators and Mentors. This FY14 Program Announcement/Funding Opportunity is soliciting additional Early-Career Investigators to join the existing Academy. Applications to this award mechanism must be submitted by the Early-Career Investigator as the Principal Investigator (PI).
