DEBBIE’S DREAM FOUNDATION: Curing Stomach Cancer launched two research grants totaling $200,000 for the 2015-2016 grant cycle. A Career Development Award for $150,000 and a Young Fellowship Grant for $50,000 are being offered.
The grants will be administered by the American Association for Cancer Research. The DDF Gastric Cancer Fellowship Grant is geared toward postdoctoral and clinical researchers, while the Career Development Award is geared toward junior faculty who have completed their most recent doctoral degree or medical residency within the past eleven years. Both grants aim to involve those who conduct gastric cancer research and want to establish a successful career path in this field.
“For the third year in a row, we are thrilled to fund gastric cancer research. Each year we have doubled the amount award and the total we have authorized for research is $350,000,” said DDF President and Founder Debbie Zelman.
The grants are for basic, translational, and clinical research in stomach cancer and are available to scientists and clinicians at various career levels.
