    NYS Department of Health

    The New York State Department of Health, Health Research Science Board, has announced its 2001 Breast Cancer Research and Education Competition for Empowerment through Innovative Research and Education (EMPIRE) grants and Postdoctoral Fellowship awards. EMPIRE grants provide support for preliminary testing of novel or high-risk hypotheses or innovative breast cancer outreach activities. Education/outreach activities should allow improved decision-making for consumers (i.e., to determine what works for whom, when and at what cost).
    The Postdoctoral Fellowship awards support the training of basic or clinical scientists with outstanding potential for making significant contributions to the battle against breast cancer. Outcomes of supported activities should benefit subsequent breast cancer research and education efforts, public health policy or the continuum of breast cancer care ?from prevention to treatment.
    Proposals may address any topic related to breast cancer causation, prevention, detection, treatment or cure. Investigative approaches appropriate to the proposal topic may be undertaken, including, but not limited to: basic, behavioral, clinical, environmental, epidemiological, or psychosocial research.
    ELIGIBILITY: Any New York State entity capable of supporting research and providing legal and fiscal oversight is eligible. Unaffiliated individuals are ineligible. Entities outside of New York State are eligible through sub-contractual agreements with New York State entities.
    FUNDING: $50,000 in total costs per year for up to two years.
