Earlier this month we announced our 11 Seed Grant recipients. These researchers will be working in the areas of diagnosis, therapy and basic science. But what does a Seed Grant really mean?
A Seed Grant is our investment in a promising research project, and it is the investigators pledge to join our fight. We are dedicated to funding scientists who can produce groundbreaking approaches to the way we view, diagnose and treat pancreatic cancer. Our scientists strive to answer a multitude of key questions surrounding pancreatic cancer. Our Seed Grants enable them to do this work.
We know this: our Seed Grant Program works! Our past recipients have earned more than $65 million in NIH funding and are making great strides towards a cure. We must continue to invest in these proposals to advance scientific understanding and provide treatment options for our pancreatic cancer victims.
We must share these successes and keep up our momentum. The more we fund, the close we are to finding a cure! Help us put an end to pancreatic cancer. Pledge. Share. Wear.
