Researchers at the University of Alabama, Birmingham Comprehensive Cancer Center received a $5.1 million support grant from the NIH this year. The abstract for the grant on NIH RePORTER says of the Comprehensive Cancer Center:

“The UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center is currently in its 39th year of continuous NCI CCSG funding. The Cancer Center has a well-established track record of translational research with a major emphasis on investigator-initiated early phase 1 and II trials, many of which emanate from Cancer Center scientific discoveries. In addition, the Center has major strengths in the area of cancer health disparity research. Current funding levels are $106.1M total direct, $32.0M NCI, $48.2M other NIH, $8.7M peer-reviewed, and $17.1M non-peer reviewed. There are 244 members representing 10 schools and 33 departments. The Cancer Center's research enterprise is organized around seven programs, including three basic science programs - Tumor Immunology, Cancer Cell Biology, and Virology; two translational/clinical programs - Experimental Therapeutics and Neuro-Oncology; and two prevention and control programs - Cancer Chemoprevention and Cancer Control and Population Sciences. The Center's research enterprise is supported by 15 shared facilities that support and enhance our basic, clinical, translational, and prevention and control research by providing research technology, advanced genomics, biostatistics/bioinformatics, tissue procurement, human and animal imaging, and recruitment and retention of trial participants.”

According to the University of Alabama, Birmingham website, the Comprehensive Cancer Center will also be debuting and reopening its Waller Tumor Institute. The $30 million renovation project began in 2010 and it is said that the institute will foster collaborative work and science research breakthroughs.
