The Marathon of Hope Cancer Centres Network (MOHCCN) Health Informatics & Data Science Awards will provide outstanding young researchers in health informatics and related fields with funding to support high-quality research in precision oncology. Valued at $40,000 each, the award aims to support outstanding graduate (Master’s or PhD) or postdoctoral researchers in a field related to health informatics and data science to use MOHCCN data to provide information that may form the basis of innovative cancer prevention, diagnosis and/or treatment.  Funds can be used as salary support for award recipients or to cover approved research expenses. Full applications for this award are due on February 2, 2024.

Support under this Request for Applications (RFA) is targeted at high-quality, clinically related research using MOHCCN data, providing information that may form the basis of innovative cancer prevention, diagnosis and/or treatment. In general research supported by these awards should include, but may not be limited to, studies that develop new:

  • – ways of generating therapeutically actionable biological cancer data
    – types of therapeutically actionable biological cancer data
  • – tools to analyze existing rich, complex or large datasets, and
  • – precision oncology trial design, conduct and analysis.

Applicants must be mentored by researcher(s) (clinician and/or scientist) currently associated with a MOHCCN-funded study. Special consideration will be afforded to applicants who include plans for inclusion of marginalized populations in their work.
