Stand Up To Cancer Gastric Cancer Interception Research Team

Funding Agency:
American Association for Cancer Research

The Stand Up To Cancer Gastric Cancer Interception Research Team Grant represents a new, focused effort to implement advances in gastric cancer interception and prevention research as rapidly as possible through the creation of a collaborative, translational, cancer “Research Team”. The most talented and promising researchers across institutions will be assembled into a Research Team, forming an optimal configuration of expertise needed to solve key problems in gastric cancer interception and prevention research. This Research Team will span multiple disciplines within and beyond the gastric oncology community, ideally including investigators with expertise outside the biological sciences, and utilize new tools to answer research questions in a coordinated way. 

Deadline: Aug. 30, 2019
