Grant supports training physician-scientists in cancer research

View Content

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have received a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to support training and mentorship for early-career physician-scientists. This relatively new funding opportunity — called Stimulating Access to Research During Residency (StARR) — will provide support for early-career physicians pursuing careers in cancer research. The participating departments include internal medicine, surgery, radiation oncology, pathology, immunology and neurosurgery, but the program has provisions for possible collaboration outside of these disciplines.
