research for 2004-2006. Proposals are invited in four areas:
environmental assessment and monitoring; public perception
of aquaculture and its effect on policy development; survival,
growth and maturation of juvenile finfish; and causes and

to manage and mitigate these. A fuller description of each
of the four areas as well as detailed application guidelines

Support for cancer research
The Newfoundland Cancer Treatment and Research Foundation,
under its fourth research competition, is offering three
feasibility or seed grants, each with a value of up to $10,000.
These awards are for one year and are normally non-renewable.
Their purpose is to allow for collection and analysis of
pilot data, to explore methods and, in general, strengthen
applications for major funding by contributing preliminary
results. The research may address any aspect of cancer from
prevention to treatment to palliative care and may be set
in any discipline from basic laboratory investigations to
psychological and sociological research as well as health
services and population health research. Applications are
particularly welcomed from new researchers and researchers
actively soliciting but currently without funding from a
major granting agency. For further information, or to request
a grant application guide, contact Dr. Paul Gardiner or
Diane Smith at 709-777-7592 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for application is Feb. 2, 2004.
