2015 Cancer Research Awards

The Executive Council of the UTHSC/ West Cancer Center/ Methodist Healthcare Family has made $200,000 available for research funding to investigators in the cancer research community. This intramural funding will be awarded to investigators based on review of research proposals.

Awards for faculty investigators will be made up to a maximum of $50,000 per project.  It is expected that projects funded through this program will be aimed at securing preliminary data to provide the basis of proposals to obtain external funding.  Awards may not be received in consecutive cycles. Prior awardees are required to submit a thorough summary of research output from the previous grant.
