Pancreatic Cancer Action Network-AACR Pathway to Leadership Grants awarded to early-career investigators
Date:3/25/2011

ORLANDO, Fla. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and the American Association for Cancer Research have awarded Jennifer M. Bailey, Ph.D., and E. Scott Seeley, M.D., Ph.D., the 2011 Pancreatic Cancer Action NetworkAACR Pathway to Leadership Grants. These grants, each totaling $600,000 over five years, will be formally awarded at the AACR 102nd Annual Meeting 2011, held April 2-6.

"Because of the poor prognoses and limited treatment options for pancreatic cancer patients, there is a great urgency to accelerate promising research in this area," said Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.), chief executive officer of the AACR. "These grants, awarded in partnership with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, encourage gifted young researchers whose projects could lead to breakthroughs that will help us better prevent, detect and treat pancreatic cancer."

"The Pathway to Leadership grants represent a substantial commitment to building a comprehensive research community and advancing discoveries that will extend the lives of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. We are honored to welcome Dr. Jennifer Bailey and Dr. Scott Seeley into our network of esteemed researchers," stated Julie Fleshman, J.D., M.B.A., president and CEO of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. "Currently, the five-year survival rate of pancreatic cancer is just 6 percent. The research community and the work of Drs. Bailey and Seeley are integral parts of our goal to double the survival rate of pancreatic cancer by 2020."

The Pathway to Leadership Grant, intended for postdoctoral or clinical research fellows, parallels the highly coveted K99/R00 early-career investigator awards offered by the National Institutes of Health. Recipients receive financial support for two years of mentored research followed by three years of independent research. Funding decisions for the Pathway to Leadership Grant are made by an outside committee of experts in pancreatic cancer using a rigo
