Massey Clinical Trial Concept Program

VCU Massey Cancer Center offers funding for innovative clinical trials that aim to translate the laboratory discoveries of Massey's investigators. The Massey Cancer Center Clinical Trial Concept (CTC) Program solicits applications twice a year (April & October) with the intent to provide initial support for innovative, and perhaps collaborative, projects that advance discoveries from our laboratories to our patients. 

Massey research members and associate members are eligible to apply for direct funding from Massey Cancer Center to support such trials. The CTC Program is not designed to support basic research, so projects submitted for consideration should not have any pre-clinical studies pending. The projects will be judged based on novelty, scientific merit, the value of the trial to Massey's clinical research priorities and the proximity to trial initiation.  

Applicants are required to submit a completed Clinical Trial Concept Submission Form by the due date.
