Recipients of 2011 UWCCC IIT Awards are Announced

It is the goal of the UWCCC to foster the development of investigator driven clinical research trials which define and develop novel agents and whose designs focus on a translational theme.


A total of 60 translational research applications were submitted in 2011 for the UWCCC/ACS Fall and Spring RFAs, with a total of 18 applications awarded. The UWCCC will again send out solicitations in April and October 2012, which will focus on population health and clinical translational research.
