Lab suppliers working to increase life science sales leads and sell lab equipment may be interested in the latest funding news at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. This 2013, the university received a $3.2 million cancer support grant from the NIH for the University of Minnesota Cancer Center. Lab suppliers may want to take advantage of this grant, along with a wealth of other research grants from the NIH and NSF, at University of Minnesota life science marketing events. The NIH RePORTER states:
“The University of Minnesota Cancer Center (UMCC) is a NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center dedicated to cancer research, education, and patient care for the citizens of the state of Minnesota and surrounding region. Since the time of the first award in 1997, there has been tremendous growth of the membership and research base. In 2007 we have 225 members with nationally peer-reviewed support totaling over $95 million. This compares to 151 members and $70 million in 2002 and 98 members and $39 million in 1997. Thus, in 10 years, the UMCC has more than doubled our membership and peer-reviewed research base. The mission of UMCC is: to create a collaborative environment that advances knowledge about the causes, prevention, detection, and treatment of cancer; to apply that knowledge to caring for our patients; and to share our discoveries with other scientists, students, professionals, and the community.”
To achieve these goals, the Cancer Center at the University of Minnesota is organized into seven programs:
- Prevention and Etiology
- Carcinogenesis and Chemoprevention
- Genetic Mechanisms of Cancer
- Tumor Biology and Progression
- Women's Cancer,
- Transplant Biology and Therapy.
