The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation awards $1.54 million in research grants for 2010-2011
Date:7/13/2010

The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation (SWCRF) has awarded 13 collaborative research grants and 3 individual research grants, totaling $1.54 million. The 16 grants represent a portion of the science grant program at the Foundation, which will award more than $2 million this year to cancer research. The grant recipients represent some of the best scientific minds in differentiation therapyreprogramming cancer cellsa hallmark of the Waxman Foundation.

Each year, the Foundation invites cancer institutes around the world to apply for a research grant. Because the SWCRF accepts one application per institute, many cancer centers are encouraged to hold their own peer review process before submitting a proposal.

Once accepted, all grants undergo an intense peer-review process by the Scientific Advisory Board of the SWCRF at the annual scientific review, held in the spring. Grant recipients are expected to present a progress report of their research findings to the Scientific Advisory Board the next year for critique.

Funded investigators become a part of the Foundation's unique "Institute Without Walls," and are expected to share their findings at the SWCRF annual scientific review. Ongoing funding is contingent upon completion of the specific aims outlined in the research proposal and successful grantees may be eligible for multi-year funding.

The collaborative research grants range between $60,000 and $120,000. Each individual research grantees receives $100,000.

"This year's grant application pool included many highly-respected cancer researchers from institutes all over the globe, making it a very competitive review process," said Gwen Darien, the executive director of the SWCRF. "We are truly thrilled to be able to fund so many qualified individuals and are excited to see the results of such promising research."

The 2010-2011 collaborative research grant recipients are:
