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 FY13 awards, and the OCRP expects to fund an additional two Early-Career Investigator/Designated Mentor pairs in FY14. 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 and Assistant Dean catalyze the growth and professional development of the Early-Career Investigators in collaboration with their Designated Mentors, assess the progress of the Early-Career Investigators, and facilitate communication and collaboration among all of the Academy members. This FY14 Funding Opportunity is soliciting applications for an Academy Dean and Assistant Dean to lead the Ovarian Cancer Academy starting no later than October 2015. The Academy Dean and Assistant Dean (referred to as Academy Leadership) must be established ovarian cancer researchers. Designated Mentors on FY14 Ovarian Cancer Academy Early-Career Investigator applications and Designated Mentors of current Ovarian Cancer Academy Early-Career Investigators are eligible to apply for this award. The Academy Leadership must demonstrate a strong record of mentoring and training junior investigators, a commitment to leadership, and the ability to objectively assess the progress of all of the Early-Career Investigators in the Ovarian Cancer Academy.
