Translational Research Pilot Projects

The Translational Research Pilot Projects were awarded to applicants who demonstrated highly interdisciplinary collaborations that had the potential to lead to imminent clinical applications. The funds for these awards were made available through the HCC’s Cancer Center Support Grant as a National Cancer Institute designated cancer center and HCC philanthropy. These projects were funded for $70,000 each.
