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.
