Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research announces 2 collaborative research grants
Date:11/20/2012

e of AML; the goal of their newly funded research will be to identify the molecular cause of these leukemias and develop a basis for treatments to help these patients.

The Foundation notified its researchers of their new funding on Tuesday at its Third Annual Medical Symposium & Luncheon, a day-long event that serves as an opportunity for researchers to share their latest findings and discuss potential research collaborations like those being funded today.

Faced with choosing between two remarkable sets of researchers promoting new research with life-altering potential, the Foundation's 10-member Medical Advisory Board decided to double its grant amount from $400,000 to $800,000 to ensure funding for both groups.

Made possible by a generous gift in 2011, the collaborative research project was designed to encourage partnerships between cancer investigators previously funded by the Foundation. The collaborations all maintain the continued goal of developing better treatments and ultimately a cure for blood-related cancers like leukemia and lymphoma.

Led by Dr. Nimer, the Foundation's Medical Advisory Board is comprised of the country's leading experts in the fields of hematology and oncology.

"Gabrielle truly believed in research," said the Foundation's President and Co-Founder Denise Rich. "This re-investment in our past grantees is a testament to their prior work and we are thrilled to help them accelerate their exciting progress."
