10 Cancer Researchers Can Receive $7.5 Million in Funds

Stand Up 2 Cancer, in collaboration with the American Association for Clinical Research, will be funding innovative research grants with a potential to further translational cancer research.

Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C), in collaboration with the American Association for Cancer Research, has announced funds to the tune of $7.5 million made available to inovative work in the field of cancer research. This amount will be evenly distributed between 10 scientists as an Innovative research Grant (IRG) over a period of 10 years.

"IRGs offer financial support to independent, early-career scientists pursuing novel, high-risk, high-reward cancer research proposals that have significant potential for translation to clinical application and hold great promise for advancing SU2C’s overarching goal of improving and saving lives," says the associated press release.

The deadline for applicant's letter of intent is November 13, 2015.
