V Successes

A Summer of Research at The V Foundation

Written by Nick Valvano, CEO of The V Foundation and guest blogger

The summer season is here and for The V Foundation it means fundraising events and awarding research grants. It’s is always exciting and gives me such a feeling of hope when I meet the scientists and they share how the V Foundation grant will help them achieve their research goals

Last week we awarded designate grants to:

•Dr. Erwin Van Meir, Emory Winship Cancer Center $2590K for small molecule drug discovery

•Drs. William Janssen and Shari Pilon-Tomas, Moffitt Cancer Center $500K for neuroblastoma research

•Dr. Steven Zeitels, Massachusetts General Hospital $ 200K for Laryngeal cancer research
