The grant provides three years of funding for research projects that must include therapeutic interventions for pancreatic cancer and deliver near-term patient benefit through investigation by a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional convergence Dream Team of experts. The project must bring together biology (e.g. genomics, epigenetics, proteomics, and/or other biological fields) and at least one additional field of research such as physics, engineering, or immunology.
Proposals for the grant must describe plans indicating how the group will use a transformative and synergistic approach, and how the work will be translated into the clinic. To maximize creativity, innovation, and collaboration, the projects should span multiple disciplines and use modern scientific tools to attack research questions in a coordinated effort. In particular, the use of convergence research is required, which in addition to biology, aims to capitalize on a range of fields such as computer science, engineering design, immunology, and nanotechnology.
The committee is chaired by Nobel laureate
