AACR and The V Foundation form Translational Cancer Research Alliance

A new alliance to promote and reward outstanding cancer research that links basic scientists with clinicians has been established between the American Association for Cancer Research and The V Foundation for Cancer Research.

The V Foundation-AACR Grants in Translational Cancer Research support the development of novel approaches to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Translational research is a two-way bridge that conveys new ideas and discoveries between the laboratory and the clinic. In this manner, advances in such areas as molecular genetics, regulatory proteins and cellular signaling can be applied to new diagnostic technologies, targeted treatments and prevention strategies to help the cancer patient.

Grant winners will be announced in September 2004, with funding to begin in October.

"These grants will make a significant contribution toward the prevention and cure of cancer by bringing together talented basic and clinical scientists throughout the United States," said Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.), Chief Executive Officer of the AACR, the world's oldest and largest scientific organization dedicated to cancer and cancer-related biomedical research. AACR provides a vital link between translational scientists and clinicians, and fosters important connections between these two research groups.

"This unique collaboration between AACR and The V Foundation will benefit cancer patients around the world," added Dr. Foti. "These new grants represent an exciting new opportunity to capitalize on our advances in basic cancer research and translate them into a benefit for cancer patients."

In welcoming this new partnership, Nick Valvano, Chief Executive Officer of The V Foundation said, "We are excited and honored to form this alliance. Since 1993, one of our goals has been to fund the best and brightest research scientists. This collaboration ensures that we will be able to continue to achieve that
