Cancer Research Coordinating Committee

Supporting novel research in all aspects of cancer

Program Announcement (August 2, 2016): UCRI is pleased to announce that 29 proposals have been nominated for CRCC awards in 2017. These 29 awards represent novel, highly meritorious directions in cancer research being undertaken by UC faculty across the system, and include support for early career faculty, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows. Congratulations to these outstanding researchers! Please check back soon to see the complete list of 2017 awardees and their projects.

The UC CRCC is a systemwide, faculty-directed cancer research program that provides competitive intramural research awards for topics in any discipline that address any aspect of cancer. Funding for this opportunity is provided through donations and bequests to the UC for cancer research. The CRCC provides one-year seed grants to faculty on the ten UC campuses. Currently, the CRCC awards grants to:
  • New UC faculty to initiate cancer research projects;
  • Established investigators in other areas of research to initiate cancer research projects;
  • Established cancer investigators to initiate cancer studies in new areas.

The Request for Proposals for the 2017 award cycle is now available. The award period will be January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017. For programmatic questions related to the research scope, management of an existing award or future funding opportunities, please contact

The CRCC gratefully acknowledges the endowments from which CRCC awards are funded.

Effective July 1, 2015, administration of the CRCC moved to UC Research Initiatives in the UC Office of the President.
