Research Grants Awarded Through AURIC - Auburn University Research Initiative In Cancer
Eleven grants have been awarded to Auburn University faculty through a university research initiative in support of interdisciplinary cancer research efforts.
The Auburn University Research Initiative in Cancer (AURIC), based at Auburn’s College of Veterinary Medicine, has announced funding of 11 grants to nine investigators through its Seed Grant program. Each grant is for one year and up to $20,000.
The list of awardees includes faculty from Auburn’s Harrison School of Pharmacy, College of Human Science, Samuel Ginn College of Engineering and College of Veterinary Medicine.
AURIC was created to improve both human and animal health, foster an environment of excellence in cancer research, promote research that enhances competitiveness to advance the understanding of the biology of cancer, and foster the translation of novel technologies from the laboratory to the clinic.
AURIC embodies the “One Medicine” concept which links human, animal and environmental health, and where discoveries in one species advance health in all species. “AURIC is human medicine, animal medicine, research and diagnostics where faculty, students, and staff are working together to solve the complex puzzle of cancer,” said Dr. Bruce Smith, director of AURIC.
