Five Seed Grants Announced by Community Outreach and Engagement

Community Outreach and Engagement awarded five seed grants totaling $45,000 to support community-engaged research projects proposed by University of Illinois Cancer Center members.

The funded projects and principal investigators are:

The seed grants are intended to drive collaborations among the three cancer research programs—cancer biology, cancer prevention and control, and translational oncology—and the people served by the science, said Yamilé Molina, PhD, associate director for community outreach and engagement.

“Research and funding shouldn’t be barriers that prevent scientists from engaging with patients and community stakeholders,” Molina said. “These seed grants give Cancer Center members the ability to leverage COE services to advance the scientific understanding of cancer by layering on perspectives from the people we intend to help.”
