FAMU Receives $1.3M NIH Grant To Support Innovative Cancer Treatment Research
Professors and Students at the Cutting Edge of New Drug Therapy Developments
Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) has received a $1,351,400 grant from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to support groundbreaking research that is poised to uncover a more direct and effective method for treating lung cancer.
The lung cancer research supported by the four-year grant is also expected to provide insight and solutions for more effective treatments for cancers that often impact minority and underserved communities and are more difficult to detect. These include pancreatic, prostate and triple negative breast cancers.
