Grants to USA, Canada, and International researchers for cancer-related research studies and projects. Funding is intended to support research that investigates how lung cancer affects diverse populations in different ways. Eligible projects may focus on healthcare access, risks, and other factors related to geographic location, socioeconomic status, gender, race, and age.

While scientific advances steadily continue to reduce lung cancer incidence and deaths, the disease disproportionately affects various groups such as African Americans, Native Americans, low socioeconomic status populations, and people from certain geographic locations. Applications are encouraged on a wide variety of disparities-related topics including but not limited to the following are eligible for funding:

  • Gender disparities in lung cancer burden
  • Causes and risk factors for lung cancer among never smokers
  • Influence of social and biological risk factors on lung cancer outcomes, access to and use of care, and quality of care
  • Genetic and gene-environment interactions
  • Interactions and contributions of multiple factors (e.g. smoking, genetics, environment, societal factors) to disparities in lung cancer outcomes
  • Contribution of healthcare access and quality to disparities in outcomes
  • Disparities related to other factors such as geography, socioeconomic status, and age
