OVARIAN CANCER RESEARCH FUND AWARDS $5.4 MILLION IN GRANTS

The New York City-based Ovarian Cancer Research Fund has announced research grants totaling $5.4 million.

Grants ranging from $75,000 to $900,000 were awarded to teams of experienced investigators, junior faculty with a strong commitment to the field, and promising young postdoctoral and clinical fellows conducting innovative research at a dozen leading medical institutions in the United States, including Baylor College of MedicineBrigham and Women’s HospitalCedars-Sinai Medical CenterMD Anderson Cancer Center, and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

“This research is a recognition that ovarian cancer should not be treated similarly in all cases,” said Jeff Boyd, chair of the foundation’s scientific advisory committee. “And, as we gain a better understanding of the origins of this extraordinary complex disease, this may inspire a rebirth and a new wave of research into much-needed screening and early detection methods.”
