American Cancer Society grants available

The American Cancer Society (ACS) has given the U.Va. Cancer Center an institutional research award to provide young cancer investigators with "seed grants."

ACS also encourages programs in psychosocial and behavioral research, as well as cancer care for the economically disadvantaged.

Junior investigators who have not received support from prior ACS institutional research grants and have faculty appointments are eligible for the grants. Those currently (as of Oct. 1, 2000) accepting funds from national granting agencies, and established investigators (associate or full professors), residents, post-doctoral and graduate students, are not eligible.

Awards totalling a maximum of $20,000 will fund three to five projects. Individual allocations can be used for equipment, consumable supplies and limited technical support.

Grant applications are available at the Cancer Center, Corner Building (old Student Health) on University Avenue, Box 334, Health Sciences Center, 924-2562. The original and 15 copies of the application and biographical sketch must be sent to the Cancer Center by Sept. 1.
