University of Alabama at Birmingham received a $29 million grant from the National Cancer Institute. This five year core grant will support six research programs at the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center. The renewal of the Cancer Center Support Grant, the most prestigious federal grant that a cancer research and treatment program can earn, also extends UAB’s elite “comprehensive” designation. According to the UAB News website this designation is awarded for scientific excellence and the ability to integrate diverse research approaches in the fight against cancer.

The National Cancer Institute is funding a million dollar study at the University of Arizona to help detect ovarian cancer sooner. It is hoped this project will lead to the first effective screening test for a disease that kills 14,000 women a year and often gives little to no warning of its presence until it’s too late.
