The Lung Cancer Research Foundation announced the awardees of its 2016 Scientific Grant Program at the Eleventh Annual Lung Cancer Awareness Luncheon, held on Monday, October 17, at The Pierre in New York City. In another record-breaking year, LCRF awarded $2.2 million in research grants to 15 researchers as part of the LCRF Scientific Grant Program, an annual program that funds projects across the spectrum of basic, clinical and translational lung cancer research.
The Lung Cancer Research Foundation welcomes submissions of grant requests for medical/scientific research projects covering all aspects of lung cancer research. Grant requests can include new project submissions, as well as requests for renewal of current funding.
Knowledge about the genetic mutations that cause tumors is offering the first real promise of drugs that can control lung cancer.
LCRF grant helps lung cancer research get one step closer to eliminating the disease.
The research from a study funded by LCRF in 2010 and 2011 was just published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The study found that cells appearing normal may actually be harbingers of lung cancer. Join us in congratulating Humam Kadara, PHD on his work!
