Cancer research grants are given annually to support junior faculty members as they begin their careers in academic medicine. We support physician scientists who are pursuing a career in academic medicine focusing on a bench-to-bedside approach. With the current shortage of federal funding, these funds are much needed to support the future of cancer research.
Tower Cancer Research Foundation has awarded over $1,500,000 in cancer research funds to more than 20 physicians over the past 6 years.
|2009||4||$25,000 to $50,000|
|2011||5||$50,000 to $100,000|
