2013 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. Projects with a multi-disciplinary focus that link basic scientists with clinicians are of particular interest.

Previous recipients of this award are ineligible for funding this grant cycle.
