UC Riverside receives 6 grants for tobacco-related research
Date:8/5/2010

rch Award.
  • Monique Williams, an applicant to the Cell, Molecular, and Developmental Biology Graduate Program, who received the Cornelius Hopper Award; this $30,000 award is given to underrepresented students who have not had a good opportunity in the past to engage in research.
  • "Applicants from more than 80 research institutions in California compete every year for these prestigious grants," said Kamlesh Asotra, a research administrator at UC TRDRP. "UC Riverside scientists secured these grant awards exclusively because of their cutting-edge and high impact proposals in myriad areas of tobacco-related disease and tobacco control research. This success demonstrates that UCR scientists are making significant efforts and contributions in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of tobacco-related public health problems in California, and this bodes well for UCR to become a future leader in this important research arena."

    UC TRDRP supports research that focuses on the prevention, causes, and treatment of tobacco-related disease and the reduction of the human and economic costs of tobacco use in California.
