Center for Health and Wellbeing

An intern will develop an original project, synthesizing available national, state, and catchment area survey data on demographics, housing, cancer history, healthcare access and barriers, insurance and financial issues, access to food and communications, lifestyle and health behaviors, cancer knowledge and beliefs, attitudes toward clinical trials and genetic testing, healthcare decision-making, and attitudes toward palliative care. However, health ethnic, racial and geographic disparities are salient in genetic testing and across the cancer continuum, leading to poorer outcomes for racial and ethnic minority groups. This project aims to understand health system barriers and facilitators to provision and financing of breast cancer diagnostic pathway.

Amount: $45000
WFU Center for Structural Biology

The primary focus of AICR’s Research Grant Programs is the support of projects exploring the effects of dietary and nutritional factors, physical activity and weight management on the etiology, pathogenesis, prevention and treatment of cancer. The mission of the Hope Funds for Cancer Research is to encourage investigation of innovative cancer treatment and detection for the most difficult-to-treat and understudied cancers. The Hope Funds for Cancer Research will support scientific and medical research programs aimed at increasing knowledge relating to both cancer care and prevention. Provides Postdoctoral Fellowships for a period of 3 years to expand the skills and expertise of breast cancer researchers and position trainees for independent careers in breast cancer research.

Amount: $2500
Endowment Scholarships

The fund is awarded to Chemistry or Biology majors in good academic standing, with financial need. The scholarship is awarded to students majoring in Biology, Chemistry, Math or Physics, and is based solely on academic merit. The scholarship is awarded to a Biology major.

Mission Boost Grant (MBG)

The American Cancer Society (ACS) has historically focused its investments on grant mechanisms that help launch the careers of investigators in cancer research. These investments have funded some of the brightest minds in cancer research and provided training for many health care professionals. They’ve also broadly expanded knowledge about cancer biology in cells, animals, and humans, and about cancer health services and disparities.
