Hollings Cancer Center wins $1.4 million grant

Researchers from the Hollings Cancer Center at the Medical University of South Carolina have won a $1.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense to enhance breast cancer research at MUSC. The four-year grant, which partners Hollings researchers with a team from the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, establishes a breast cancer research training program at MUSC called BRIDGE (Breast Cancer Research Initiative for Developing Growth and Education), enabling young investigators from MUSC to be mentored closely by scientists from MUSC and Baylor College of Medicine, which is internationally-recognized for breast cancer research. Hollings Cancer Center at the Medical University of South Carolina is a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center and the largest academic-based cancer program in South Carolina.
