We have some great news, Dr. Pradeep Sathyanarayana was just awarded a $250,000 extension grant from Hyundai Hope on Wheels Foundation to continue his work.
In a letter from Dr. Sathyanarayana he writes: "I wanted to share an exciting update with you. Recently I was awarded a $250,000 research grant from Hyundai Hope on Wheels Foundation. It was a
nationally competitive grant application and my grant received scores of 1.5 and 1.7. I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to Maine Cancer Foundation for funding this project in 2011. It is because of those funds I was able to build the solid preliminary data for this grant."
It's really exciting to know that we can attract and support cancer research here in Maine, enabling scientists to capture national-level awards and continue their work right here. It's fun to think that somebody's $5 or $10 donation was the start of an avalanche.
