Grants Awarded

Click on any project title for a more detailed description of the project. For more information about any of these awards (e.g., PI contact information or associated publications), please use the corresponding project number to search for information at the NIH Reporter website. Consistent with NIH policy, abstracts are not available for projects receiving their first award within the past year, so descriptions provided below are from the NCI program director.

New awards will be posted as they are issued.
