AACR and The V Foundation form Translational Cancer Research Alliance

goal."

These grants will be awarded to National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer centers, prominent universities, and freestanding research institutions, on behalf of their research teams. Proposals that hold outstanding promise for translating basic cancer findings into a new preventive strategy or therapeutic application for cancer, including improved survival and/or quality of life, will be selected for the grants.

Recipient institutions will receive grants of $300,000 over three years, to be matched by the institutions from all available sources, creating a total project commitment of $600,000 for each award. A project team must have a minimum of two scientists from the same facility and the team must possess basic and clinical research expertise.

"Today, we are celebrating an extraordinary partnership between two organizations with complementary strengths but a common dedication to curing cancer," said AACR President-Elect Lynn M. Matrisian, Ph.D., Ingram Professor of Cancer Research and Chair, Department of Cancer Biology, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, Tenn. "In tackling the difficult process of translating basic laboratory findings into new cancer therapies, we hope to accelerate progress against this disease."
