2011 Young Investigator Awards Announced
The Cancer Research Foundation is pleased to announce the 2011 Young Investigator Award winners. This year's award winners will recieve a $75,000 grant to fund work that will be completed in the next two years, with final reports on the projects due in the early spring of 2014. This year's Young Investigators have proposed a number of compelling and very promising study in cancer research, investigating a wide range of subjects, from the role of proteins in the structure of skin cancer stem cells to how the out-of-pocket costs of having head and neck cancer could change the treatment an oncologist advises and whether a patient follows that advice.
The 2011 Young Investigator Award grantees are:
“Population-specific Genetic Variants Important in Susceptibility in Cyclophosphamide in Pediatric Patients”
“High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Ablation of Prostate Tissue in vivo with Magnetic Resonance Imaging Guidance”
“Does glucocorticoid receptor (GR) signaling compensate for androgen receptor (AR) function in castration resistant prostate cancer (CRPC)?”
"Thanks to the hard work, commitment, and compassion of scientists, researchers, and organizations like the Cancer Research Foundation, there is renewed hope for discovering better treatments and eventually a cure for cancer.
I commend all of you for your outstanding contributions to the field of cancer research. For five decades, your commitment to the crusade against cancer has given hope and comfort to people across the nation."
