New Initiative on Aging and Cancer

New Initiative on Aging and Cancer

Targeting the relationship between cancer and aging, the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute on Aging will jointly fund a new initiative to investigate the correlation between the two. The institutes will provide approximately $25 million in grants over the 5-year program, with $5 million awarded in the initial year to eight institutions. "The need for research at the aging-cancer interface has never been more urgent," NCI said in announcing the initiative. The program's initial grants went to researchers at Case Western Reserve University, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, University of Iowa, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center, University of Wisconsin, University of Colorado, and University of Washington.
