ERACE Grant to Address Disparities in Cancer Care

ConcertAI is sponsoring the Engaging Research to Achieve Cancer Care Equity (ERACE) Research Award. This award will provide early-stage career research investigators with monetary support and access to one of the most comprehensive cancer patient datasets available for research purposes in the United States.

The award is intended to support research aimed at examining potential differences in treatment patterns, outcomes, clinical practice, genomics, safety, and other issues related to cancer care among populations with existing disparities, particularly those that exist among racial and ethnic groups, which could inform strategies to eliminate cancer health disparities. The award will be granted based on individual merit and the candidate’s potential for long term impact in cancer disparity research.
