The Executive Council of West Cancer Center has made $200,000 available for funding cancer-related research projects from investigators with a career commitment to cancer research. This intramural funding will be awarded to Memphis-based investigators based on review of research proposals described in the document below.

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. Projects with a multi-disciplinary focus that link basic scientists with clinicians are of particular interest. at national meetings and manuscript submission. Projects focusing on community outcomes,
immunotherapy, drug discovery/development, and/or women's cancers are also of interest. Recipients of this award in 2015 are ineligible for this round of funding.
