Date:5/31/2013

Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) May 31, 2013

The Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (Meso Foundation) announced the opening of its 2013 Mesothelioma Grant Cycle to researchers across the United States and the world. Each grant is worth $100,000. To date the Meso Foundation has awarded over $8.2 million in research funds.

Researchers are invited to submit applications by visiting proposalCENTRAL’s website. There, they will find the listing for the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation along with submission instructions. Applications are limited to 10 pages (not including biographies) and are due no later than August 2, 2013. Final award decisions will be made in December 2013 and all applicants will be notified of the outcome.

Eligible projects may relate to benchwork, translational or clinical research that is not presently funded or pending review and may be conducted through any not-for-profit academic, medical or research institution. The Meso Foundation will review and monitor the project's progress and results, requiring semi-annual disposition of funds reports, a ten-month progress report, a presentation at the Foundation’s Symposium and a full progress report at the close of the project.

Projects will be considered for funding by the Meso Foundation’s Science Advisory Board, whose members are published and esteemed doctors and researchers within the field of mesothelioma.

More information about the grants program and projects funded since 1999 can be found on the Meso Foundation’s website.

Mesothelioma is a malignant tumor of the lining of the lung, abdomen, or heart known to be caused by exposure to asbestos. Medical experts consider it one of the most aggressive and deadly of all cancers. Approximately 3,000 Americans are diagnosed with mesothelioma every year and an estimated one-third were exposed while serving in the Navy or working in Navy shipyards.
