The Massachusetts Society of Clinical Oncologists (MSCO) is proud to announce that we are collaborating and supporting the Conquer Cancer Foundation Young Investigator’s Grant Program. The Young Investigator Award (YIA) provides funding to promising investigators to encourage and promote quality research in oncology. The grant supports pre-clinical and clinical cancer research projects by oncologists who are undergoing a career transition from a fellowship program to a faculty appointment.
Praful Ravi, MBBChir, MRCP, a Medical Oncologist at the Lank Center for Genitourinary Oncology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, is the recipient of the inaugural YIA Award supported by MSCO.
The purpose of the MSCO Quality & Innovation Grant is to improve the care of patients in the state of Massachusetts living with a diagnosis of cancer. Funding will be provided for an individual or a group seeking to improve the deliver of cancer care, the quality of cancer care, treatment of cancer, or comfort of patients suffering from cancer.
