This site follows Lance throughout his training and worldwide cancer awareness campaign. Information from the website below. I appreciate and thank the foundation and Livestrong for featuring posts from the Medical Quack! More about grants awarded can be viewed here.
If there is anyone who is a cancer survivor, this is a very good site to visit. BD
The Lance Armstrong Foundation is proud of its 10-year history of awarding grants to established and young investigators funding research in the areas of cancer survivorship and the basic and clinical science of testicular cancer.
We are excited to announce the recipients of the 2008 research grants. Read more about the grants that we funded through our 2008 RFP.
Additionally, in 2009, we will fund research in three important ways.
- Ongoing support of the LIVESTRONG Survivorship Center of Excellence Network
- Continued funding of the Germ Cell Tumor and Tissue Bank Resource at USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center
- Funding of research initiatives to further understand the biology of adolescent and young adult cancers as recommended by the Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology Progress Review Group
Later in 2009, the Journal of General Internal Medicine (JGIM) will release a special supplemental issue, sponsored by the LAF. The goal of this supplement is to raise awareness of, stimulate interest in and increase research into issues pertaining to cancer survivorship care in general internal medicine.
