2015 Cancer Research Awards

The Executive Council of the UT-West Cancer Center has made $50,000 available for research funding to clinical trainees (fellows and residents) at UTHSC or West Clinic for the performance of cancer-related research projects. This intramural funding will be awarded to investigators based on review of research proposals.

Trainee Awards will be made up to a maximum of $10,000 per project.  It is expected that projects funded through this program will be aimed at securing data to provide the basis of presentations at national meetings and manuscript submission. Previous recipients of this award are eligible for funding this grant cycle.
