1859_Assessing the Path to Independence: Evaluating Career Catalyst Research Grants 

10-23-2020 11:28

As grant funding to support an independent research lab becomes more difficult to obtain, many early career researchers are seeking alternatives to an independent research career or leaving the field altogether.

Susan G. Komen is committed to supporting early career researchers and has invested more than $100 million in Career Catalyst Research (CCR) grants, which supports early career investigators to develop their research programs and achieve career independence.

Given the current challenges to establishing an independent research lab, Komen evaluated whether the CCR grant effectively facilitated career independence through receipt of promotions and large federal grants, as well as bibliometric impacts. Data were used to determine whether a bridge grant may be needed to further facilitate career independence.

The evaluation showed the CCR grant is helping recipients achieve independence and keeping them in the field of breast cancer, and additional grants mechanisms may not be needed for these grantees.
